Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi has ridiculed the safety concerns raised by it but the Australian Cricketers Association claims to have made "some positive progress" in getting its players' security demands met by the IPL organisers.

"Our security adviser Reg Dickason has been working with the IPL's security adviser, Nicholls-Steyn. They've been working for a few days now on what we've identified as the issues that have come out of various player meetings," Marsh told Cricinfo.

"Nicholls-Steyn is aware of those and they are working through the issues and we're making some positive progress. It's probably looked more positive over the last few days than what it has (before). There's still 15 days to go before the event starts and things can happen very quickly in India, we've seen that over the years," he added.

Modi had earlier dismissed the ACA's concerns in his twitter feeds, saying the IPL would not "be dictated by players associations on where to play".

Meanwhile, Marsh played down reports of a bust-up between current and former Australian cricketers with regards to IPL participation.
