Heavy security greets England cricketers

The England cricket side was escorted to their hotel by around 50 armed commandos after returning to India yesterday for their two-test tour.

The England team decided on Sunday to resume the tour after curtailing a one-day series following last month's militant attacks in Mumbai.

All-rounder Andrew Flintoff says players were united when they finally voted to go back but it's going to be tough coping with tight security at grounds and hotels.

The first test, starting on Thursday, was switched to Chennai from Ahmedabad and the second to Mohali from Mumbai.
