Bangalore, Sept 29 (UNI) Star batsman Sachin Tendulkar today felt that tight security measures in the wake of bomb blasts in different parts of the country may not affect the players much during four test series against Australia beginning here from October Nine.
Talking to newsmen here, he said, "I don't think it (Security) bothers us. It is our home land and in our own country I don't think any one will harm us.
"We have confidence that nothing bad will happen. People in their home land should be free to move any where and any time. I don't think there will be security concern," he opined.
Replying to a question whether the Australian players would be under pressure for security reasons, Sachin said he would not be able to coment on what Australians might feel but as for Indian players were concerned there now not much of a bother.
Following recent serial blasts in the city and elsewhere in the country, city police have already placed tight security at M Chinnaswamy stadium where the Indian players began their week-long conditioning camp. Metal detectors, CCTV cameras and a posse of policemen, many of whom were armed, could be witnessed in and around the stadium.
Even some of the journalists were screened by security personel who insisted on a pass or identification card. The authorities have decided to issue temporary passes for scribes covering the camp which ends October four.
