Cricket Australia remains “comfortable” with the level of security provided to the Australian team, after terror attacks in London on Saturday night left at least six dead and 48 injured.
Australia are one of three teams in London, one of the venues for the Champions Trophy. They are due to play Bangladesh on June 5 at The Oval in south London.
“As with the rest of the world, the Australian team is shocked and saddened at the events that have occurred in London overnight and our thoughts are with those directly involved and their loved ones,” CA said. “The team, support staff and travelling contingent have been accounted for.”
“Our security team is working closely with the ICC and LOC [local organising committee] to ensure the safety and security of our players and support staff is paramount. At this stage we are comfortable with the level of security being provided to us and will continue to monitor the situation.”
The London attacks on Saturday, when a vehicle ran into people on London Bridge and there were stabbings at Borough Market, came two weeks after a suicide bombing at a concert in Manchester.
Following the Manchester attack, Cricket South Africa had said there were concerns over safety but was comfortable with the reassurances and guarantees provided regarding the team’s security. South Africa are touring the UK not only for the Champions Trophy but also for a bilateral series against England.
