    Default Australians, English delay cricket trips to India


    Australians, English delay cricket trips to India
    MELBOURNE: Australian and English cricket clubs postponed leaving for India for next week''s Champions Twenty20 League because of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

    Terrorists killed at least 87 people, wounded at least 900 and took Westerners hostage in attacks on Thursday across Mumbai, where the tournament was to start. One of the luxury hotels in flames, the Taj Mahal, was where English side Middle+++ planned to stay.

    Middle+++ captain Shaun Udal told media on Wednesday the team''s scheduled flight to Mumbai on Thursday was canceled. He added the team was waiting for new travel plans, as the games in Mumbai were reportedly moved to Bangalore.

    Cricket Australia halted the departures of the Western Australia and Victoria state teams, along with test stars Mike Hussey, Matthew Hayden, Shane Watson and Shane Warne who were playing for Indian teams.

    The attacks could yet affect the travel of England''s test and one-day teams, who are already in India.

    England was in Cuttack on Wednesday, when it lost the fifth one-day international in a seven-game series. The team was due to travel to Guwahati for the next match on Saturday.

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

    Mumbai was also the scheduled venue for the second test between England and India starting on Dec. 19.

    In the group phase of the eight-team Champions Twenty20 League, Victoria is scheduled to play at Mumbai''s Brabourne Stadium on December 3 against Middle+++ and the following day against India''s Chennai Super Kings, who have Australian stars Hayden and Hussey.

    Western Australia play all three of its preliminary-round games in Bangalore.
