Assam government orders probe into Australia cricket team bus attack

Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli made the rain-revised chase look easy

After a stunning eight-wicket victory in the second T20I match against India at Barsapara Stadium, Guwahati, on Tuesday, Team Australia were on their way back to the hotel.

Guwahati, a city mostly imbibed with football fever, welcomed back global cricket after an eight year long hiatus at the newly inaugurated Barsapara Cricket stadium on Tuesday. There was not a single unsavory incident inside the stadium during the match that was a smooth affair.

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. They are being quizzed.

The series is level at 1-1 and concludes on Friday in Hyderabad. No one was sitting at the window, when the rock hit the glass panel.

The 30-year-old batsman had accompanied the pic with a caption which said, "Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!" The post was also retweeted by stand-in captain David Warner.

Indian Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, an Olympic silver medallist in shooting, said there were tight security arrangements in place for the Australian team as well as for the players taking part in the Under-17 FIFA World Cup.

Cricket Australia said on its website there were no injuries but "the Australian players were understandably shaken up by the incident". "Investigation is on full swing and Police have already picked up two suspects", tweeted Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal. Sonowal stated that the guilty persons will be punished directed the DGP to look into matter.
