Barinder Saluja, Chandigarh,Sept. 25 : While several countries have raised doubts on the Indian security arrangements for the upcoming Commonwealth Games, the Australian cricket team has endorsed it by claiming it to be one of the finest.
Expressing satisfaction over the arrangements made for them, team members claimed that contrary to the ongoing belief of the country being terror stricken, it is safe and apt for hosting any kind of games.
Australian all-rounder Shane Watson said, “I would like to tell the athletes visiting India for the Games that there is no need to panic.”
Further adding, he said, “We are satisfied with the security arrangements in India. The security is perfect.”
Echoing his teammate, Australian vice-captain Michael Clarke said the team was satisfied with the security arrangements.
“In fact, the arrangements (security) are fantastic. We are comfortable here. We always get looked after very well in the country,” said Clarke.
Other team members, including off-spinner Nathan Hauritz, Steve Smith and Phillip Hughes were of the view that they have no clue why there is so much of hue and cry about the security issue. Notably, many star athletes are not coming to India due to risk of terror attacks during the Commonwealth Games.
