Australian cricket team bus comes under attack in India


New Delhi, Oct 11 (TNS): Australian cricket team touring India was attacked with a rock after the team’s victory in a Twenty20 match against the host nation on Tuesday.

Australian cricketer Aaron Finch, who is part of the visiting team, shared a picture of the brick attack on micro-blogging website Twitter.

“Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!,” he tweeted.

The BCCI, ICC or Cricket Australia are yet to respond to the incident. Australian captain David Warner later retweeted Finch while Glenn Maxwell liked the post.

Australia had recorded a comprehensive eight-wicket win over India in the match.

It marked the end of an eight-match winning streak for India in T20Is against the Australians. This match was also the first international fixture to be held at Guwahati’s Barsapara stadium.

The loss is a rare one for India this year, especially against Australia. India had managed a 2-1 win in the Test series that the two sides played earlier in the year. They then defeated Australian 4-1 in the ODI series that preceded the ongoing T20I rubber.
