Australian cricketers have suffered a minor attack on the team bus when they were returning to the team hotel on Monday night in Chittagong.
After the end of first day’s play of the first Test at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, the Australian team was making their way to the team hotel. A rock was thrown into the bus on the way. The window was broken. But no player or a support stuff was injured. No glass fell into the bus as it was broken.
CA said the window was broken by a “small rock or stone” as Australia´s players were returning to the team hotel after Monday´s opening day in the second Test in Chittagong.
No one was injured.
“Team security personnel are currently in discussion with local authorities while they investigate the cause, which is believed to have come from a small rock or stone.
“Bangladesh authorities are taking the incident seriously and security has been increased on the route.”
The security has been beefed up after the incident. Australia had canceled Bangladesh tour in 2015 due to security concerns. That tour was shifted to 2017. Enough security has been provided to the visiting team since they arrived.
CA added that they were happy with security measures that have been in place and we are comfortable with the response from the Bangladesh authorities and the increased security presence we have been provided in light of the incident.
