Progress is made over IPL security issues

Despite a scathing attack by IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi on Australia’s cricketers the Australian Cricketers Association has claimed progress is being made over security issues.

"Our security adviser Reg Dickason has been working with the IPL's security adviser, Nicholls-Steyn. They've been working for a few days now on what we've identified as the issues that have come out of various player meetings" ACA chief executive Paul Marsh told 'Cricinfo'.

"Nicholls-Steyn is aware of those and they are working through the issues and we're making some positive progress" he added.

"It's probably looked more positive over the last few days than what it has (before). There's still 15 days to go before the event starts and things can happen very quickly in India, we've seen that over the years".

Australia’s top IPL players had told the Australian Cricketers' Association about their concerns for their safety in India after the bombings in Pune last week during a meeting held in Sydney.
