The Australian cricket team survived a security scare after the second T20 International against India, when a “rock” was thrown at the team bus, leaving the visiting players shaken.

Luckily no player was injured as the nearest seat to the window pane remained unoccupied but raised a question mark on the security arrangement of the Assam Cricket Association and state police for the match, which was conducted at the new constructed stadium in Barsapara.

The incident drew sharp reactions as people across the spectrum condemned the “attack”:

‘Deep apology’

‘Throwing stones at visitors not acceptable’

‘Atithi devo Bhava’
