13 October 2017

The joy of thrashing India in the T20 encounter at Guwahati diminished to some extent for the visitor Australia as its team bus reportedly got pelted with stones after the match.

Miscreants managed to throw the missile though the Australian cricket team bus was accompanied by local police and security officials on their way back to the hotel. Earlier in the day, Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, condemning the incident, insisted that India was still one of the most gracious hosts in world.

No-one was injured in the incident that happened as the team was returning to their hotel from the Barsapara Stadium. And after Australia strolled to an eight-wicket win in the second T20I, Behrendorff was told of the comparison.

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. Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal said the incident had damaged the state's reputation as a reliable host for major sporting events and that state police had identified two suspects.
