Australian cricketer David Warner has said that he feels totally safe in Hyderabad which will be hosting the second Test between India and Australia, following the bombings in the city last week which left 15 people dead and more than 100 injured.

Warner, who made his Test debut in the Chennai clash, said that he is not afraid for his life because he feels that the security and traffic closures have been satisfactorily increased in the city by the local police, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Adding that he had never felt any danger in India whenever he came for Indian Premier League and T20 Champion League games in the country, Warner said that the unfortunate incident and its consequences were out of their hands and so simply adjusting to the situation was the best way to deal with it.

Warner further said that although it was not in the best interests of the Australian squad to play in the city under the tense situation at hand, it is important for the squad to focus solely on their work.

Australia's attack in Hyderabad is set to be fronted by James Pattinson despite his workload being monitored closely, the report added. (ANI)
