Australia's ICC World T20 squad has been delayed after bomb threats were made against five flights in India.

The plane carrying the 15-man squad from Delhi to Chandigarh was not one of the five Jet Airways services that received threats.

But their aircraft circled for almost half an hour while the plane used for Jet Airways flight No.2657 was being thoroughly searched at Chandigarh airport.

Indian media reports suggested the threats, which came on the same day Brussels airport was attacked, were a hoax.
