Australian team's bus pelted with stones after India's crushing defeat

A rock has been thrown through one of the windows of Australia's team bus following their T20 victory in the northern Indian town of Guwahati.

Earlier in the day, Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, condemning the incident, insisted that India was still one of the most gracious hosts in world. Not only so, this was also their first win against India after seven consecutive T20I loss against the hosts. There was not a single unsavory incident inside the stadium during the match that was a smooth affair. They are being quizzed.

Following the tourists' comfortable eight-wicket win in Guwahati that levelled the three-match series at 1-1, Australia's Finch posted a message on Twitter which featured an image of a smashed bus window. No player was, however, hurt in the incident, a city police source informed.

Australian opening batsman Aaron Finch sent a tweet late on Tuesday night, saying a rock was hurled at the team bus while they were on their way back to the hotel.

Skipper David Warner (2) was the first man to be dismissed off a short-pitched ball from Bumrah before Bhuvneshwar struck with the wicket of the in-form Aaron Finch (8), comfortably caught by captain Virat Kohli on both occasions.

Referring to the security arrangements put in place for worldwide sports events in the state, the chief minister cited an appreciation letter from Roma Khanna, the head of venue operation for the FIFA Under-17 World Cup.

Cricket Australia said on its website there were no injuries but "the Australian players were understandably shaken up by the incident". It was near the team hotel and not at the crowded street near the stadium. The DGP said everything would become clear after the investigation is over.

Assam Cricket Association president and Finance minister of the state Himanta Biswa Sarma also condemned the incident.
