Rattled by Yuvraj Singh's breach of security, the Chandigarh police have issued a fresh advisory to the teams of India and England, asking the players to inform in advance of their plans to venture out.

Chandigarh police SP (security) Hardeep Singh Doon said on Saturday that if any player breaks the security cordon the police will make a complaint to the BCCI.

As per the fresh guidelines, the players have been advised to report to police at least three hours in advance if he wishes to go out of his place of stay which is hotel Taj in Chandigarh.

"The players of both the teams have been advised not to talk to any stranger and not to go out together," Doon said. Besides, additional Personal Security guards (PSOs) have been attached with players to provide them security anywhere and everywhere.

Yuvraj on Thursday night had put the police in a tight spot after he went to a petrol pump owned by his father and former Cricketer Yograj Singh. Immediately a police team was rushed to spot which also escorted the player to a Sikh shrine in Sohana near here.

Doon had written a letter with fresh guidelines directly to players and other officials of both the teams, sources said here.

Even as players are kept under a tight security vigil, the spectators visiting the stadium had to pass through at least four rounds of security checks before entering the stadium.
