Australia cricket still in wait and see mode

7:06 am on 1 October 2008

The Australian cricket team is still adopting a wait and see approach as fears mount that the third Test of next month's four-match series will be moved from Delhi following the latest bombing in the Indian capital.

After the completion of their practice match against a Rajasthan Academy XI in Jaipur, squad paceman Peter Siddle said the team was still in a holding pattern.

But a Delhi cricket official says he wouldn't be surprised if the Test, due to start on October 29, was moved.

The fatal bomb blast killed one and injured scores of others, forcing the Board of Control for Cricket in India to consider their options for an alternative Test venue.

Australian Cricketers' Association president Darren Lehmann says the players' union would wait on word from Cricket Australia and the Federal Government before taking a position on the continuation or re-scheduling of the tour.
