HYDERABAD: Australian cricket team touring India was attacked with a rock after the team’s victory in a Twenty20 match against the host nation on Tuesday.

Australian cricketer Aaron Finch, who is part of the visiting team, shared a picture of the brick attack on micro-blogging website Twitter.

“Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!,” he tweeted.

Earlier, fast bowler Jason Behrendorff led an inspired bowling effort to help Australia down India by eight wickets in the second Twenty20 international and level the series in Guwahati on Tuesday.

Behrendorff, playing his second match after making his debut in Ranchi last week, claimed four wickets to bowl out India for 118 before the visitors chased down the total with 27 balls to spare.

Moises Henriques, who hit 62 after being promoted to number three, and Travis Head, who made 48, put together an unbeaten 109-run partnership to keep the three-match series alive.
