No threat to Australia tour: BCCI

Rajkot:

The Indian Cricket Board on Sunday asserted that the serial blasts in Delhi will have no bearing on the upcoming Test tour by Australia and it would go ahead as scheduled.

After the capital was rocked by a series of five blasts last evening, Cricket Australia (CA) said it was considering the option of sending a security team to India before taking a call on the four-Test tour next month.

BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah, however, asserted there was no threat to the tour.

"I have not heard about any communication from Australia and I don't think there will be any change to the tour schedule," Shah said.

"I hope Australia also understands our position. The situation is normal and the Australian tour to India will go as per schedule," he said.

On CA's plan to send a security team to India, Shah said, "If there are any concerns, a security team will come. I don't think there will be any problem in Australia coming to India."
