New Delhi [India], Oct 11 (ANI): Following the recent attack on the Australian cricket team bus in Guwahati last night, Indian Women's cricket captain Mithali Raj on Wednesday said it is not in a good taste.

This statement of Raj came after a rock was allegedly thrown at the Australian team bus as they were on their way back to the team hotel from the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, following their eight-wicket win in the second T20I of the three-match series in Guwahati.

"Throwing rock stone is not in a good taste because it is a sport and people should be able to strictly see it likewise and not beyond that," Raj told ANI.

Earlier in the day, Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, condemning the incident, insisted that India was still one of the most gracious hosts in world.

However, Rathore said that the cricket team was satisfied with the safety and security arrangements made by the state.

Australian opener Aaron Finch had tweeted a picture of a broken window saying, "Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!"

The rock, believed to be roughly the size of a cricket ball, was thrown at a window on the right-hand side of the bus, while it was returning from the stadium.

It should be noted that no injuries were caused to any of the players or the support staff. (ANI)
