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

The Australian cricket team endured a security scare after the second T20 global against India in Guwahati when the team bus was damaged in a stone-throwing incident, for which the state police has nabbed two youths.

While Cricket Australia is certain that it was an attack when they were travelling back from the stadium to the team hotel.

"Really unfortunate incident after a great game aimed to tarnish Guwahati's reputation as emerging sports hub".

According to a statement issued by the chief minister, Khanna termed the security and facilities provided to teams in Guwahati as immaculate and said these had set the benchmark for other events of such stature that India might host in the future. We strongly condemn it.

"Whoever got indulged in the hooliganism did it with the sole objective of defaming Assam & derailing its journey towards the top. the culprits will face the full force of the law & given exemplary punishment".

Indian Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, an Olympic silver medalist in shooting, said there were tight security arrangements in place for the Australian team as well as for the players taking part in the Under-17 FIFA World Cup.

But apparently, a rock was thrown at their bus that broke one of the window panes, whilst returning.

To control the situation, Indian authorities had not only increased security but also summoned military officers for the protection of Aussie players.

Australian opener Aaron Finch had tweeted a picture of a broken window saying, "Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!"
