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

Since India’s loss to Bangladesh two weeks ago and their subsequent first round exit from the World Cup, Indian fans have been responding angrily. They have been angry protests, burnt effigies of the 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 will be disappointed, and fair enough. They have invested a lot of hope in this team and we haven’t delivered. So, they are entitled to be disappointed. But I just hope that no one in is in any physical danger.”
