Australia's Adam Zampa describes Guwahati bus attack as 'pretty scary'

The on-going T20 worldwide series between India and Australia hit a road bump when a stone was hurled at the visitors' bus after the second match at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati, which they had won by eight wickets.

A rock was thrown through the bus window following Australia's Twenty20 win over India in Guwahati. "Personal security of visiting athletes & teams is extremely important for us", Rathore said on his official Twitter account. 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.

"Guwahati stone-throwing incident NOT reflective of our security measures". He talked about how Australian team and Federation Internationale de Football Association authorities are content with the security in the country and India will always remain a graceful host.

India and Australia teams will now travel to Hyderabad for the third and final T20I on Friday (October 13).The hosts had won the preceding ODI series 4-1. "Have spoken to Sarbananda Sonowalji about the Guwahati incident". "Really unfortunate incident after a great game aimed to tarnish Guwahati's reputation as an emerging sports hub. We strongly condemn it". "Whoever got indulged in the hooliganism did it with the sole objective of defaming Assam & derailing its journey towards the top. the culprits will face the full force of the law & given exemplary punishment".

The standoff over the elections has sparked demonstrations, but the numbers of protesters has tended to be in the hundreds rather than the thousands.

Players and staff were travelling back to the hotel from the Barsapara Stadium, when the bus was hit.

The game won by Australia was the first worldwide match to be played in the north-eastern city of Guwahati for eight years.

The report about the unsavory incident became viral after Australian opener Aaron Finch had tweeted a picture of a broken glass window of the bus.
