So what  If  India has  lost , but thats not the way to show your displeasure . After all they are our guests  and  cricket is a game  which  brings  people and the countries  together .
Yes .The Australia cricket team suffered a scare following their T20 international win over India in Guwahati on Tuesday after a rock was thrown at their team bus, shattering one of the windows official  sources said.
Players and staff of the Australian team  were travelling from the newly built  Barsapara Stadium back to their team hotel  in the outskits of the   city when the rock pierced the window on the right-hand side of the bus, highly  placed  police sources said who were supervising  the   smooth  functioning of the game .
The Cricket Association  board said the rock was "believed to be roughly the size of a cricket ball" and had ended up inside the bus.
"In a remarkable piece of good fortune, no one was sitting on the seat next to the window when it was broken," CA's report said.
"While no one was injured, the Ausssie  players were understandably shaken up by the incident."
Australia's team bus was also under attack  in Bangladesh five weeks ago as it travelled back to a hotel following the first day's play of the second and final test against the home side in Chittagong.
Police are investigating  as to who were  behind the attack . Meanwhile  security around the Australian team has been tightened .
It may be mentioned that after a span of seven years an international cricket match was organised at the newly built Barsapara Stadium  in the city . It  is not yet known  what actions the Cricket Association would take after the unsavoury incident.
Australia opening batsman Aaron Finch posted a photo of a shattered window on a bus on Twitter.
"Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!" he tweeted.
