Bangalore, Nov 28 (UNI) A water tight security cover was provided for the England's one-day cricket team which arrived in the city for a transit halt en route to London this evening.

The squad arrived in the city this evening from Bhubaneshwar, after ECB called off the tour with England trailing the seven-match series 0-5. The remaining two matches were to be held at Guwahati and Delhi.

This comes in the wake of the terror attack on Mumbai since Wednesday night.

The 28 member Team, that included supporting staff, which arrived at the international airport here was taken to the Hotel amidst tight security. The team is expected to return to London tomorrow morning.

A posse of commandos of Karnataka Special Action Force, besides Airport security, were deployed at the airport on the team's arrival.

The area was cordoned off and the team was taken under high-security escort to the five-star hotel where they would stay before boarding the morning flight to London.
