New Delhi:

Indian batsman Virender Sehwag who is a resident of Delhi, has urged the Australians to go ahead with the tour.

"Delhi is not like Pakistan. For us it is back to normal routine today. There is no place in the world that is completely safe, not even the US. I think the Aussies should tour India," Sehwag told the Sydney Morning Herald, a noted Australian daily.

Five synchronised bomb blasts ripped through crowded markets across India's national capital on Saturday evening, killing more than 20 people and wounding at least 90 others.

New Delhi is scheduled to host the third of the four Tests between India and Australia from October 29 after Ricky Ponting's men arrive next Sunday for the six-week tour.

Indian cricket officials have reason to worry about Australia's security concerns.

England, who will tour India after the Australian series, are scheduled to play the first of two Tests in the western city of Ahmedabad, where 45 people were killed in July in serial bomb blasts.
