India’s sports minister Wednesday sought to reassure Australian cricketers about their safety after a rock shattered a window on the bus taking them to their hotel following a series-levelling win in the second Twenty20 international.
The incident in the northeastern Indian city of Guwahati was 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 Bangladesh after a Test match.
“Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!,” batsman Aaron Finch tweeted after the eight-wicket win against India.
The photo he posted on Twitter showed a shattered window pane with a large hole.
