Following the Sydney Lindt cafe hostage crisis, security around the Indian team has been beefed up.
“We are constantly in touch with Cricket Australia’s top bosses,” Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Sanjay Patel told PTI. “We are monitoring the situation closely and security of our players is paramount. The players are in Brisbane and everything is normal there.
“However, the security of the Indian team has been beefed up considerably. We have been informed by Cricket Australia that additional police forces have been deployed for the Indian team. We are happy with what CA has arranged.”
When asked if the fourth Test in Sydney would be moved or cancelled, Patel said: “We haven’t reached that stage as the next Test is in Brisbane. It’s too early to comment on the fate of the Sydney Test. We are confident CA will take appropriate measures to ensure safety and security. At this point I can’t say anything about the Sydney Test. For us, the tour is still on.”
