BCCI official today has announced that the very crucial and much talked-about test series between India and Australia will start in time; that means the first test between these two teams will start at Bangalore from the next month as par the schedule.
The BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah has told the press that here is no scope to reschedule this series and the tests will be played in Bangalore, Mohall, New Delhi and Nagpur.
After the last month’s bomb blast in Bangalore, this seems to be a challenge for the BCCI. Already the Champions Trophy in Pakistan is being called off, now its time to see how well the BCCI manages the security forces in techno-hub of India. The test in Bangalore is schedule from 9 to 13 October.
In that last month’s blast, almost 14 people were injured and 1 was killed, so from all perspective this starter of the test series is definitely going to be a highly tensed match. Not only the test match, but already a $US 400,000 ATP tournament has been called off due to security condition in Bangalore.
