After recording an eight-wicket victory against India in the second T20 match in Guwahati, on 10 October, the Australian cricket team was in for a shock when they were greeted with a rock hitting their team bus.
The rock shattered the window pane of the bus. The incident occurred when the team was on their way back to the hotel, as tweeted by Australian batsman Aaron Finch.
