BCCI assures safety for Australian tour

Rajkot, Sep 14: Assuring that there was no threat to Australia's tour of India, the BCCI today said the serial blasts that rocked Delhi last evening will have no impact on the schedules of the Test or ODI series, due to start from October 9.

Reacting to the blasts, Cricket Australia (CA) said it was considering the option of sending a security team to India to review the security situation in India before the start of the four-Test tour next month. BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah, however, said the blasts last evening will not affect the tour.
''I have not heard about any communication from Australia and I don't think there will be any change to the tour schedule,'' Shah stated.

''I hope Australia also understands our position. The situation is normal and the Australian tour to India will go as per schedule,'' he maintained.

When asked about CA's plan to send a security team to India, Shah said, ''If there are any concerns, a security team will come. I don't think there will be any problem in Australia coming to India.'' The national capital is scheduled to host the World Champions for the third Test commencing on October 29.
