Middlesex postpone trip to Mumbai


Middlesex have cancelled plans to fly to Mumbai on Thursday in the wake of terrorist attacks in the Indian city.

The English county side had been due to fly out to Mumbai for the inaugural Twenty20 Champions League.

But Middlesex will postpone their flight by at least 24 hours in light of the events in India which have seen at least 80 people killed and 200 injured.

The England team are currently in India and will take advice from the Foreign Office on whether to complete the tour.

Middlesex captain Shaun Udal said his side would not be flying on Thursday but could not confirm when their travel plans had been rescheduled for.

"All we know is our flight has been cancelled in the morning," he told Sky Sports.

Middlesex were due to play on the opening day of the Twenty20 Champions League next Wednesday at Mumbai's Brabourne Stadium.

The squad were scheduled to stay at the Taj Mahal Palace, one of two luxury hotels attacked on Wednesday.

England were due to return to Mumbai, where their tour began three weeks ago, on 16 December ahead of the second and final Test starting three days later.

They too had been scheduled to stay at the Taj Mahal Palace.
