Admitting that the security of visiting athletes and teams is paramount, Rathore confirmed that he had a word with Sonowal regarding the incident. "Really unfortunate incident after a great game aimed to tarnish Guwahati's reputation as an emerging sports hub". Have spoken to @sarbanandsonwal ji about the Guwahati incident. "The investigation is in full swing & Police have already picked up 2 suspects". The opener of Australian cricket team Aaron Finch tweeted a picture of the broken window. But after a memorable win, the visitors' players got a scare when a rock, reported to be a size of a cricket ball, was thrown at their bus by some miscreant.
