Australia to review security before India tour    
The bomb blasts in Delhi cast a shadow on the upcoming tour to India with Cricket Australia (CA) saying it will review the security situation before proceeding with the four-match Test series.?

The board would seek advice from the Australian Government and ask team security manager Reg Dickason for an urgent report on the security situation in India, CA Public Affairs Manager Peter Young said in a statement on Sunday.?

Dickason will work with the Australian Cricketers' Association and CA General Manager of Cricket Michael Brown who has been assigned the job to speak to the Indian Cricket Board, the Australian High Commission in New Delhi and security agencies to gain information on traveling in India.?

"We will seek advice from the Australian Government and our security expert Dickason has been asked to compile a report. Cricket General Manager Brown will speak to the BCCI and High Commission in New Delhi," Young said. "Based on this report and other inputs, we will take a decision on the tour next week or so," he said.?

"The fundamental principle that always comes first is the safety of the team and the team officials."?

Young said a pre-tour assessment has already been done but if the concerns remain Cricket Australia will consider another inspection. Meanwhile, latest Australian government's travel advice for India is "to exercise a high degree of caution because of high risk of terrorist activity by militant groups".?

A 15-man Australian squad will leave for India on September 21 with the first Test starting in Bangalore on October 9. New Delhi is the venue of the third Test starting on October 29.?
