Australian Cricket Team Bus Attacked After T20 Win In Guwahati
An absolutely disgraceful incident took place late last night after the Australian Cricket Team was on the way to their hotel. Merely a few hours after the Australian team defeated India by 8 wickets in the second T20, their team bus was attacked by a brick.
The second T20 between India and Australia was reportedly the first International match being played at the newly constructed Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati. This match had also brought international cricket back to the city after a span of 7 years.
Australian opener Aaron Finch tweeted the image of a smashed bus window with the caption:
Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!

His teammates David Warner and Glen Maxwell have appeared to like the post on Twitter. International news portals have reported that there have been no casualties.
India and Australia have long shared a fierce rivalry with players often getting into on and off-field verbal spats. Most recently, the Indian Test Captain borderline called his Australian counterpart “cheater” for looking towards the dressing room before taking a review.
However, security of the two teams has never been compromised. Australian cricketers, despite the cut-throat rivalry, have always shared a special connection with Indian fans. Many Australian Cricketers have gone on to break the cultural barrier to have off-field careers in the country.
All of that, however, now stands to be threatened because someone, somewhere decided to throw a rock at the Australian Cricket Team bus.
BCCI and the Australian Cricket Board are yet to make an official statement on the matter.
The Indian Twitter was seen issuing apologies to the Australian Cricket Team for this shameful incident:
Apologies 2 the Australian Cricket team for the hooliganism that you had to face! The citizens of @Guwahati don't condone such behaviour!

Whatever happened is very shameful.
