India reassures Aussies after rock thrown at team bus

India reassures Aussies after rock thrown at team bus”

"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.

Guwahati is also one of the six cities in the country hosting the Federation Internationale de Football Association U17 World Cup the incident post the match doesn't reflect very well on the city.

Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore took stock of the situation and said that it is NOT reflective of our security measures.

Holding of global cricket in Guwahati in future has come under serious question because of the incident even as the organiser Assam Cricket Association (ACA) has also lodged a complaint with the police regarding the incident. "India remains a graceful host", Rathore, who replaced Vijay Goel as the Sports Minister earlier this year, tweeted.

On that occasion the team was travelling in an armed convoy amid a level of security usually granted to visiting heads of state, with roads blocked off and armed guards patrolling crowds while the convoy was moving.

Authorities believed local children were behind the Bangladesh rock throwing.

It was the first global match to be played in the north-eastern city of Guwahati for eight years.

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

"The police have already arrested two persons and are investigating into the matter". Vow to take strictest action against the culprits. It was done to defame Assam and derail the state's journey towards excellence. Australia opening batsman Aaron Finch posted a photo of a shattered window on a bus on Twitter.

It is the second such incident in five weeks, after the Australia team bus was hit by a rock in Chittagong during the second Test against Bangladesh last month.

If Australia can win Saturday's series decider in Hyderabad, it will salvage an unlikely victory after being comfortably beaten 4-1 in the ODIs.
