Assam government orders probe into Australia cricket team bus attack

Assam government orders probe into Australia cricket team bus attack

Before this morning's attack, Australia had secured an eight-wicket win over India to level their T20 series at 1-1.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) at that time had immediately increased security for the Australian team to ensure there were no further mishaps. None of the players were injured.

In a similar incident, a small rock or stone was thrown at the Australian team's bus in September in Chittagong during their two-Test series against Bangladesh.

State finance, education and health etc., minister Dr Himanta Bishwa Sarma while apologizing for the incident in a twitter message said that such behaviour was unpardonable, the guilty would be punished.

This incident took place after the players and staff were traveling from Busapara Stadium back to their team hotel in the eastern city. "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.

Cricket fans across Assam turned up at the hotel where the visitors were staying and the airport with placards apologising for the untoward incident, which showed Guwahati in bad light.

Taking to Twitter, Rathore? said that the stone-throwing incident in Guwahati was not reflective of the country's security measures. He said that the Indian fans have been great to the Australian team and that it is unfair that one person has to spoil the experience for Guwahati, where an global cricket match was being hosted only for the second time. Aus team & Federation Internationale de Football Association are content w/those. "India remains a graceful host".

Zampa bowled well in the second T20I taking 2 wickets in his spell. Paceman Jason Behrendorff was the Man-of-the-match for his 4/21.

Australia chased down the target in 15.3 overs with Moises Henriques top-scoring with 62 not out. It all happened after their T20 victory over India in Guwahati.
