India Vs Australia: 'Sorry Aussies', Guwahati Fans Apologise For Rock-Throwing Incident

The on-going T20 International series between India and Australia hit a road bump when a stone was hurled at the visitors' bus after the second match at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati, which they had won by eight wickets. Bringing the incident to light, Australian opener Aaron Finch had uploaded a photo of the shattered glass window of the Australian bus.

Following the incident, cricketers and ministers condemned the attack and promised that security will be beefed up ahead of the third T20 in Hyderabad.

Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal quickly took to Twitter to condemn the attack. While, Rathore tweeted, "India remains a graceful host", Sonowal tweeted, "Really unfortunate incident after a great game aimed to tarnish Guwahati's reputation as emerging sports hub. We strongly condemn it."
Cricket fans across Assam turned up at the hotel where the visitors were staying and the airport with placards apologising for the untoward incident, which showed Guwahati in bad light.
Most of the placards simply read 'sorry' while one labelled the incident as 'shameful.'
