Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa, who is currently a part of the Australian T20I squad playing in India has spoken on the incident which has shaken the cricket world, the Guwahati bus attack. After winning the second T20I against India, the Australian bus was attacked by a stone by an unknown guy, which shattered the glass window. Fortunately, no one was hurt from the Australian team.
Zampa speaking to cricket.com.au, said, “I had my headphones on quite loud and was looking towards the other side of the bus. I just heard this loud bang. It was a pretty scary five seconds or so. Our security guard mentioned quite quickly that it might have been a rock. It was a pretty scary incident. You never want those things to happen. It was disappointing.”
He further added, “I think everyone was alright. I think after what happened in Bangladesh with the rock as well, no one was too rattled. It was dealt with quite well, I think. The Indian fans are so great to us, which is one of the reasons why it’s so hard to travel here. They’re so loud, they love cricket and they’re so passionate about it. Guwahati doesn’t get much cricket as it is so for one person to do that and to spoil it for the rest of the Indian fans, it’s pretty disappointing.”
As per the report by Cricket Australia, no one was hurt in the incident. The report stated, “In a remarkable piece of good fortune, no one was sitting on the seat next to the window when it was broken. While no one was injured, the Australian players were understandably shaken up by the incident.”
