JAIPUR: Australian cricket's security officer is monitoring the situation in India following Saturday's bomb blast in New Delhi that killed a 13-year-old boy and injured 18 others.
Meanwhile, Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) said security of Ponting eleven would be further beefed up.
Australian squad spokesman Matthew Slade said the team is yet to receive any instructions from Cricket Australia. “I don't have any details of the blasts, nor do I think Cricket Australia would be able to react immediately. They would wait for details,''
Slade added he would be given briefing on security arrangements, adding he was unsure whether match venue would be changed.
Slade was quoted as saying by an Indian news agency. The Australian team is undergoing a weeklong training and acclimatization camp in Jaipur, including the two-day match that began Saturday.
On the other hand, Chairman Media Committee, BCCI Rajiv Shukla said he was in touch with interior ministry for the security of Australian team. He said administration of all host cities have been directed also in this regard.
Shukla further said Delhi test would be played according to schedule.
