Jaipur bombings cause concern

Several Rajasthan Royals players are considering going home following the bomb blasts in Jaipur.

Australian pair Shane Warne and Shane Watson are currently in Goa and have expressed their concern over the situation in Jaipur, with South Africa skipper Graeme Smith another believed to be pondering his Indian Premier League future.

Rajasthan performance manager, Australian Darren Berry, told Times Now: "We are seriously considering going home. It is terrifying to think that we were standing a couple of days ago two kilometres away from the blast site."

"Post-blasts it is a very uneasy situation. I have a wife and three kids back in Melbourne."

A string of explosions tore through busy markets and the old town of Jaipur, a popular tourist destination, on Tuesday, leaving more than 60 people dead and hundreds more injured.

Royals chief executive Fraser Castellieno added: "We know of the players' concerns."
