Australian fast bowler Stuart Clark has admitted that his teammates were worried over the fact that they will be visiting New Delhi to play a Test match where recently bomb blasts claimed many lives.
"It is pretty fresh in everyone's mind at the moment. We are still hanging out and waiting to see what will happen, but there is some concern that we are going to somewhere where an explosion has just been. I would be lying if I said there wasn't," Clark was quoted as saying in Sydney Morning Herald.
Australians are scheduled to play third of four matches in the series in New Delhi from October 29.
However, Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade had told Cricket Australia that the advice on touring India had not changed despite two blasts in two weeks in the national capital.
CA spokesman Peter Young had also said that after a briefing from DFAT no restrictions would be put on the players and they would not be confined to the team hotel.
"The protocols haven't changed. They're doing things like avoiding major markets and avoiding religious gatherings on public holidays. The sorts of things that tourists are advised to avoid as well," Young said.
