    THE team bus carrying Australia players and staff has been attacked hours after a T20 international win in India.
    It represents a major security scare following the first international match ever held at the venue

    Aussie batsman Aaron Finch tweeted a picture of the shattered window tonight as security of the top cricketers on the planet was put under threat.

    Finch, the former captain of the Australian side, tweeted: "Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!"

    David Warner later retweeted Finch's post while Glenn Maxwell liked it.

    The BCCI, ICC or Cricket Australia are yet to respond to the incident.

    Earlier, Jason Behrendorff marked his second Twenty20 international with four wickets as Australia recorded a comfortable eight-wicket win to level the three-match series at 1-1.

    The left-arm paceman ripped through the hosts' top order in Guwahati before an unbroken third-wicket partnership of 109 from Moises Henriques (62no) and Travis Head (48no) helped Australia coast to victory.

    Australia captain David Warner put India into bat and then saw his side begin quickly as they attempted to remain in the series.

    Behrendorff trapped opener Rohit Sharma lbw and then took a return catch to see off India captain Virat Kohli for a duck inside the first over.

    He continued his impressive attack by taking the wickets of Manish Pandey and Shikhar Dhawan to leave the hosts struggling on 27 for four.

    Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav offered some resistance with a fifth-wicket stand of 33 before Adam Zampa had the former stumped for 13 and clean bowled the latter for 27.

    Hardik Pandya's knock of 25 and 16 from left-hander Kuldeep Yadav helped put some more runs on the board but the hosts were bowled out for 118 off the final ball of their 20 overs, leaving Australia chasing a modest 119 for victory.

    The tourists' innings also got off to a slow start as Warner and Finch were each caught by Kohli inside three overs following the respective deliveries of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

    India, however, made no further breakthroughs and Henriques - whose knock included four fours and four sixes - and Head wrapped up a convincing success with 27 balls remaining.

    Rock thrown at Australia's team bus, says Finch
    Australia batsman Aaron Finch has tweeted a picture of their team bus with a broken window, saying a rock had been thrown at the vehicle as they were leaving the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. ESPNcricinfo understands that no one was hurt. Police protection around the team hotel was increased following the incident.

    Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!

    Australia had beaten India by eight wickets with 27 balls to spare and were on their way to the hotel, according to Finch, when the incident occurred. They had a similar scare in Bangladesh a couple of months ago, with authorities believing street children had thrown something at their bus. The BCB immediately increased security for the Australian team to ensure there were no further mishaps.
