Hyderabad, Sep 30 (UNI) Australian captain Ricky Ponting today dismissed reports of security fears amongst his teammates saying he was absolutely convinced with the kind of security being provided to his team and asserted that his players do not have any apprehensions about playing in India.

''There is no apprehension about the security,'' Ponting told mediapersons here.

He further added that the team management was constantly in touch with Cricket Australia's security advisors and said they would be following their advice.

''Our team management is in constant touch with the Cricket Australia's security advisors. But as for now we do not have any problems with the kind of security being provided to us and we believe the tour should go ahead as scheduled,'' Ponting added.

However, both Cricket Australia (CA) and the BCCI have said the Australia's four-Test series in India will go ahead as scheduled and the serial bomb blasts will have no bearing to the Test series.

Earlier, pacer Stuart Clark had expressed his concerns about the blasts in India.

Referring to the Delhi blasts, he had said he was in some kind of discomfort over travelling to Delhi, where ''such ghastly incidents had happened in the last few days.'' UNI XC RAR PY HT1645
