The Indian Cricket Board on Tuesday asserted that the government has provided 'satisfying' security arrangements for the Australian tour hence there was no change in any venue or schedule of the four-Test series.

This means that the third Test, to begin in New Delhi from October 29, will not shifted to some other venue.

A three-member BCCI delegation today met the home ministry officials to discuss the security arrangements.

Some Australian players had expressed concerns over playing in the national capital after the recent serial blasts, that claimed many lives.

"We met the the officials to discuss the security during the series. We put forth our views. The series is on and there is no change in the venue or the schedule.

"We are satisfied by the security arrangement provided by the government. They have comctced full co-operation to us," Rajiv Shukla, chairman of the BCCI finance committee, told reporters after the 20-minute meeting.

Along with Shukla, president of the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra and BCCI Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty also met Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta and other officials.
