Australia team bus window being smashed

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

Cricket fans take part in a demonstration to condemn the Tuesday's attack on Australian team bus, in Guwahati on Wednesday. None of the players were injured. Not the first time Australia's team bus was also struck by a rock in Bangladesh five weeks ago as it travelled back to a hotel following the first day's play of the second and final test against the home side in Chittagong. He described the incident as "pretty scary". The opener of Australian cricket team Aaron Finch tweeted a picture of the broken window.

Cricket Australia's (CA) website reported that the players were "shaken up" by the incident. "India remains a graceful host", Rathore, who replaced Vijay Goel as the Sports Minister earlier this year, tweeted.

Top Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin said guests should be treated with respect and urged restraint from his countrymen. Sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said the incident was not reflective of the security measures.

According to a statement issued by the chief minister, Khanna termed the security and facilities provided to teams in Guwahati as immaculate and said these had set the benchmark for other events of such stature that India might host in the future. "They're so loud, they love cricket and they're so passionate about it. Guwahati doesn't get much cricket as it is so for one person to do that and to spoil it for the rest of the Indian fans, it's pretty disappointing", he said.

Zampa bowled well in the second T20I taking 2 wickets in his spell. He was declared the Man of the Match.

Australian all-rounder Moises Henriques, who scored his T20 half-century to guide the Kangaroos to a comfortable win, took to Twitter to express his gratitude towards the fans who showed up at the airport and hotel.
