Rock thrown at Australian cricket team’s bus in Bangladesh

Rock thrown at Australian cricket team’s bus in Bangladesh

Bangladesh authorities have beefed up security after an incident where a rock was thrown at the Australian team bus.

The projectile didn’t smash through the glass but cracked one of the windows and prompted a swift investigation from Australia’s security unit.

No players or staff were injured in the incident. Players were understood to be startled by the care given the heightened level of security but by this morning the mood amongst the group seemed largely unconcerned.

On the heavily armed convoy to the ground this morning, there was an increased security presence.

“On route back to the hotel last night a window on the Australian team bus was broken. No one was injured in the incident,” said CA’s head of security, Sean Carroll.

“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.

“To date, we have been happy with the 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.”

Australia has been travelling to the grounds in both Dhaka and Chittagong with extensive levels of security, with a heavily guarded convoy escorting them back and forth.

That security was increased today following the rock throwing incident, however, the Australian camp is comfortable the broken window was caused by erroneous youths.

It’s understood local police were interviewing a bunch of local kids this morning, amid reports that they’d been throwing rocks at passing cars and tuk tuks.
