Assam government orders probe into Australia cricket team bus attack

In a shameful incident, a rock was thrown at Australian cricket team's bus after their victory over India in the second Twenty20 worldwide in Guwahati last night (October 10).

A window pane of the Australian team bus was damaged in the attack.

Indian Sports Minsiter Rajyavardhan Rathore condemned the incident and said the country remains as "graceful host".

Sports minister Rajyavardhan Rathore has given assurance to the visiting teams, participating in the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup, offering to provide personal security after a rock was thrown at the Australian team bus in Guwahati yesterday. Aus team & Federation Internationale de Football Association are content w/those.

Adam Zampa channelled the great Shane Warne with an absolute jaffa to dismiss MS Dhoni in Australia's T20 win over India on Tuesday night.

However, Rathore implied the incident as a one-off and assured that the visiting athletes for the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup should not panic as security around the hotel in which the teams were staying was tightened as a follow-up. "Have spoken to Sarbananda Sonowalji about the Guwahati incident". The host nation is supposed to provide impeccable security to the cricket teams which are visiting for the objective of the matches. "We strongly condemn it", Sonowal said on his official Twitter account. "Really unfortunate incident after a great game aimed to tarnish Guwahati's reputation as an emerging sports hub". "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". Everything was fine until yesterday, till the picture of broken window glass of the bus surfaced the Internet.

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

India and Australia will now head to Hyderabad to lock horns in the series-decider T-20 match of the three-match series, which is to be played on October 13 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
