England's cricketers will not be forced to return to India for the two-Test series between the two countries after the terror attacks that have left 195 people dead in the financial capital of Mumbai.

The managing director for England cricket Hugh Morris says the team is committed to returning to India if it is "safe and secure" .

However Morris doesn't think players would be forced to go.

He says security information will be assessed over the next two days.

Morris acknowledges there is not much time for that, with the first test due to start in Ahmedabad on December 11.
