Australian cricket team management is updating the security scenario in the country following the low-intensity blast in New Delhi on Saturday.

Media manager Matthew Slade said here the team management has not got any instructions from Cricket Australia and would act only after getting them.

"I don't have any details of the blasts nor do I think CA would be able to react immediately. They would wait for details. So, I can't say anything now," Slade said.

"If we have to do anything besides the normal security drill we will do only after getting instructions," he added.

The team's security officer Frank De Massey was, however, seen inspecting round the Sawai Mansingh Stadium ground, where the visiting team is playing against Rajasthan Cricket Academy's Centre of Excellence team.

He, and Indian liaison officer for the team, were looking into how much distance the seizable crowd of at least 3500 are far from the ground, and how the entrance inside the ground has been manned by securitymen.

RCA officials said fullproof security has been given to the visiting team.

"We have a another thorough check of the stadium and the team hotel yesterday. They are satisfied," he said.

Meanwhile, Australian batsman Simon Katich said security of the team was a matter handled by Cricket Australia and the players would follow whatever instructions their board sends.

"Look we just heard the news. In terms of information our team security officer will be gathering the details. Our board chief will probably be better informed tomorrow and get to know what exactly was happening.

"Obviously concerned (about the development). But as I said it is fresh news to us and our security officer will deal with. I am not aware of any phone calls from Australia but the security officer will liaise with officials back home," he said.
