Canberra: Rebuffing theories that the Indian outfit had threatened to pull out of the warm-up game against Cricket Australia Chairman’s XI, Team India manager GS Walia on Tuesday said that the reports of a walkout by the visitors were completely baseless.

"The story is completely baseless. There is no truth in it. Rain is part of cricket. You don't leave a venue only because it's raining," said Indian team's media manager G S Walia said on Tuesday.

The manager added that the Australian media was way off the mark when it claimed that the Indians were not keen on playing in the conditions and had threatened to pull out of the warm-up tie.
