The Australian men’s field hockey team will compete in next week’s World Cup after Hockey Australia was told there are no known credible security threats against the tournament in New Delhi.

The team’s participation was in doubt after Ilyas Kashmiri, a Pakistani militant with links to al-Qaida, warned the international community against sending athletes to the hockey World Cup, Indian Premier League and Commonwealth Games, all events to be held in India this year.

Hockey Australia said it had received advice from the Australian High Commission and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade assuring them there were no credible threats against the team.

The field hockey tournament runs from Feb. 28 to March 13.
