Rock thrown at Australian team bus after 2nd T20I in Guwahati

"It was a devious act to tarnish Guwahati's reputation as an emerging sports hub".

A rock was thrown at Australia's team bus after Tuesday's Twenty20 victory in India and smashed a window, batsman Aaron Finch appears to have revealed. "Our deep apology. People of assam never endorse such behaviour. we will punish the guilty", Assam chief minister Sarbanada Sonowal tweeted. "We strongly condemn it", Sonowal said on his official Twitter account.

On the other hand, Guwahati city police commissioner Hiren Nath said that, a team of the Guwahati city police headed by a DIG was probing the incident.

"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 rock, believed to be roughly the size of a cricket ball, was thrown at a window on the right-hand side of the bus, while it was returning from the stadium.

Australia have made one change to their team.

The incident is the second in two months, after Cricket Australia said in September that the team's bus window was broken by a "small rock or stone" in Chittagong, Bangladesh after a Test match.

Following the tourists' comfortable eight-wicket win in Guwahati that levelled the three-match series at 1-1, Australia's Finch posted a message on Twitter which featured an image of a smashed bus window. "India remains a graceful host". Assam CM asked the DGP to look into the matter and arrest those involved in it, the police also arrested a couple of youngsters this morning as a part of the investigation. The 27-year-old was playing only his second game at the global level on Tuesday when India and Australia locked horns in the second T20 match.
