Chandigarh: The Australian cricketers, who arrived on Monday for a two Test series against India, have been provided with more than 100 security guards in military-style uniforms, who will be guarding them round the clock.
The corridors of hotel where the players checked in were filled with security guards and patrols were being conducted throughout the grounds.

Ricky Ponting's team didn't have to leave New Delhi airport at all because they were already booked on a connecting flight to Chandigarh.
Police blocked off the surrounding roads, making it nearly impossible for non-guests to get into the hotel, the Daily Telegraph reports.
All vehicles approaching the area must go through two security checks and all guests' bags, including the Australian players' kit bags, were screened thoroughly.
