From The Guardian:
The fate of the Commonwealth Games in India is hanging in the balance after leading nations expressed concern over the state of facilities.
Sir Andrew Foster, chairman of the England team, said it remained “very concerned” over the state of facilities, while the Scotland team delayed its departure for Delhi. Foster said the team still required assurances from organisers over the athletes’ village and the games arenas. He added that a final decision would have to be made over the next few days. “All options remain open,” he said.
The ultimate option would be pulling out of the tournament entirely but Foster said Team England was “not there yet”. He also said he expected more English athletes may still choose to pull out of the games unilaterally. The first 22 members of the England team will fly to Delhi tomorrow as planned.
India’s prime minister, Manmohan Singh, prepared for a round of crisis talks and the Welsh team set organisers a deadline to prove the venues and athletes’ village were fit for use.
Foster earlier said the future of the event remained “on a knife edge”, 11 days before the opening ceremony. More:
