In what could be termed as a shameful act, the window of the bus in which the Australian Cricket Team was travelling back to the hotel after their victory against India by 8 wickets, was reportedly pelted with stones, by miscreants. 

ecoration-style:initial">  ecoration-style:initial">The social media was taken by fire as soon as Australian cricketer Aaron Finch tweeted, “Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to hotel!!” ecoration-style:initial">  ecoration-style:initial">The hooliganism was condemned by people from all over the state.  ecoration-style:initial">  ecoration-style:initial">Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal over a series of tweets, condemned the hooliganism and begged for an apology from the Australian team, and also vowed to promise the guilty. His tweets read, “Really unfortunate incident after a great game aimed to tarnish Guwahati's reputation as emerging sports hub. We strongly condemn it. Vow to take strictest action against the culprits. Investigation is on full swing & Police have already picked up 2 suspects. Yesterday, we had a great game. We had the best audiences. People of Assam are biggest sports lovers & great hosts. People of Assam don't approve this. #FIFAU17WC going on in Guwahati. FIFA & all teams expressed their satisfaction at our arrangements. Yesterday, we witnessed a spectacular game & great display of sportsman spirit by the audience. Both teams were given a rousing welcome. Performances by both the teams were hailed by audience, expressing people's commitment towards turning Assam as Sports Capital of India. So, whoever got indulged in the hooliganism did it on the sole objective of defaming Assam & derailing its journey towards the top. That's a design we will foil with the support of the people of Assam. Culprits will face full force of law & given exemplary punishment." ecoration-style:initial">  ecoration-style:initial">
