world Updated: Nov 27, 2008 09:13 IST

Plans to fly Middlesex to Mumbai for the Premier League Twenty20 competition have been canceled because of shootings which have killed at least 78 people in the city. Team captain Shaun Udal told Sky Sports News on Wednesday the team's travel plans had been changed and he was waiting for further developments.

"All we know is our flight has been canceled in the morning," said Udal, who added that the tournament is still set to go but with the Mumbai matches moved to Bangalore.

The shootings could even effect the travel plans of the England test and one-day teams in India.

The players are in Cuttack after having lost their fifth one-day game on Wednesday and are due to travel to Guwahati for the next match on Saturday.

"We will be guided by the foreign office and will await developments," England team spokesman Andrew Walpole said. "We need to get a clearer idea of what the situation is before we react further."
