Rahul Dravid does not believe that his players will be in any danger when they return home by the irate fans.

Since India's loss to Bangladesh two weeks ago and their subsequent first round exit from the cricket World Cup after their defeat to Sri Lanka on Friday, Indian fans have been expressing their fury.
They have mounted angry public protests, burnt effigies of the Indian players and called for their axing.

Dravid told the media here he was not worried.

"I am not really worried. I hope the players wouldn't be under any physical danger. To be honest, I don't expect that to be the case," Dravid said.

"I am sure people are disappointed. They have invested a lot of hope in this team and we haven't delivered. So, they are entitled to be disappointed. It is fair enough. But I just hope that no one is in any physical danger."
