AUSTRALIA’S cricket captain Ricky Ponting said today he was satisfied with security arrangements for his team’s tour in India even as concerns grew over next month’s Delhi Commonwealth Games.

“During our tours we are regularly briefed as far as security issues are concerned,” Ponting, currently in India for a Test and one-day series, told reporters in Chandigarh.

“We are satisfied with the security arrangements here,” he said.

Ponting’s comments came as Australia issued a stark travel warning, saying there was a “high risk of terrorism” during the October 3-14 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi.

On Sunday (September 19), two attackers on a motorbike opened fire on a tourist bus in the Indian capital, injuring two Taiwanese members of a television crew.

Australia’s cricketers, who arrived in India yesterday, begin the month-long tour with a three-day practice match against the Indian Board President’s XI in Chandigarh from September 25.

The two Tests in Mohali (October 1-5) and Bangalore (October 9-13) will be followed by three one-day internationals in Kochi (October 17), Visakhapatnam (October 20) and Goa (October 24).
