Indian authorities arrest two after Australian team vehicle attack

Australia cricket team bus attacked with rock after defeating India

Guwahati: The people of Assam especially the cricket lovers have been shamed before the world because of a freak incident of throwing of a rock at the bus carrying Australian team back to hotel from Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati on Tuesday night after the T20 cricket match was over. The seat next to the window was unoccupied at the time.

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.

The incident happened as Australia travelled back to their hotel following day one of the second Test in Chittagong.

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.

"Really unfortunate incident after a great game aimed to tarnish Guwahati's reputation as emerging sports hub. We strongly condemn it", Sonowal said on his official Twitter account. The story was quickly reported after Aussie opener Aaron Finch shared photograph of the bad incident on Twitter saying, "Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel".

India's sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said the incident was not reflective of the security measures.

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

India will play the third and final Twenty20 global on October 13.

It was only last month that a window on Australia's team bus was broken in Bangladesh, believed to be caused by a small rock or stone being thrown at the vehicle.
