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.
