Australian cricket team bus attacked with stone in Guwahati while returning after beating Team India in second T20I
The Australian cricket team bus was attacked with a stone while Steve Smith & Co were returning to a city hotel from the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati after registering an eight-wicket win over Team India in the second Twenty20 International (T20I).

The Aussies faced the scary incident on Tuesday night after they convincingly beat India and levelled the three-match series at 1-1.

Soon after this incident, Australian batsman Aaron Finch took to his official Twitter account and wrote:

"Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!"

Finch also shared a picture of the broken window of the bus along with his tweet.

"While no one was injured, the Australian players were understandably shaken up by the incident," said a report in

The report also added, "Players and staff were travelling from the ground back to their team hotel when someone threw a rock, believed to be roughly the size of a cricket ball, at a window on the right-hand side of the bus. The projectile pierced through the glass and ended up inside the bus, shattering the window."

However, no official statement has yet been released by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) or Cricket Australia (CA) regarding the incident.

This is not the first time that Australian team bus has come under attack, earlier the last month, the team witnessed a similar incident during their tour of Bangladesh that occurred in Chittagong.
