After the Australian cricket team endured a security scare in Guwahati in a stone-throwing incident, Pakistani fans took to Twitter and asked International Cricket Council (ICC) to take action against India.

The incident took place after the visiting side defeated India by eight wickets in the second T20 to level the three-match series 1-1. No player was injured as the nearest seat to the damaged window pane was unoccupied.

Aaron Finch tweeted a picture of the broken window, with the caption, “Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!” His tweet was almost immediately picked up by the media across the globe, prompting Assam chief minister to direct a probe, which resulted in the police nabbing two youths.
