Cricketers are concerned about playing in Delhi: Clark

Sydney, Sep 30 (UNI) Pace bowler Stuart Clark admitted that the recent bombings in Delhi were weighing on the minds of players and they have their own apprehension to play in the national capital.

''It is pretty fresh in everyone's mind at the moment,'' Clark told a Sydney radio station. ''We are still hanging out and waiting to see what will happen, but there is some concern that we are going to somewhere where an explosion has just been. I would be lying if I said there wasn't.'' After spending a week in Jaipur the Australians have arrived in Hyderabad, where they will have a practise match against Board President XI. The Test series begins in Bangalore and then moves on to Mohali, before the third Test starts in Delhi on October 29.

Meanwhile, the Australian players are receiving regular briefings from their tour security consultant Frank Dimasi, who has completed a report on the Delhi blast for Cricket Australia.

The report does not make a recommendation about whether the Australians should play in Delhi.
