Sydney:

Australian players involved in the Indian Premier League will have a security briefing with Australian Cricketers' Association chief executive Paul Marsh on Tuesday.

The security situation in India has worsened this month with a terrorist attack in Pune killing nine people and an al-Qaeda-linked group purportedly issuing a threat over the World Cup hockey tournament, the IPL and Commonwealth Games.

Fast bowler Shaun Tait said he hoped to be better informed about the situation in India.

"The whole situation is a little bit disappointing because I would love to go to the IPL personally and hopefully everything can work out and we can go," Tait said.

Tait is contracted to play for the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Twenty20 tournament from March 12 to April 25.

"I am not sure whose decision it is yet and I think we will probably find out a bit more in this meeting tomorrow," he said.

"Obviously we talk to Rajasthan over the next couple of days and we see what they have to say, but apart from that, the rest is out of our control."
