Rock hits Australian cricket team's bus

According to the details provided, stones were pelted on the Australian cricket team's bus while the team was returning from Barsapara Stadium to the team's hotel in Guwahati on Tuesday.

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

"In a remarkable piece of good fortune, no one was sitting on the seat next to the window when it was broken", CA's report said.

Authorities believed local children were behind the Bangladesh rock-throwing.

Terming the incident "unfortunate", the chief minister said it was a "devious act to tarnish Guwahati's reputation as an emerging sports hub".

This was followed by them being whitewashed in the ODI and T20I series. "Test captaincy is a little hard and I've learnt a lot". Pakistan and Sri Lanka now play a five-match one-day series, the first in Dubai on Friday.

"Investigation is on full swing & Police have already picked up 2 suspects". The host nation is supposed to provide impeccable security to the cricket teams which are visiting for the goal of the matches.

"Personal security of visiting athletes & teams is extremely important for us", he tweeted.

"Have spoken to Sarbananda Sonowalji about the Guwahati incident".

David Warner, captaining the side in the absence of the injured Steve Smith, fell in the first over after hitting two boundaries off seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar but Australia seemed to have recovered through Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell.

Australia is scheduled to play India in the third and final Twenty20 of the series in Hyderabad Friday. Soon after the conclusion of the match Aussie opener Aaron Finch tweeted a picture of the shattered glass of the team bus and expressed his shock at the turn of events.
