The umpires were returning to their hotel from the at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium when the incident happened.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board media manager Rabeed Imam told ESPNcricinfo that nobody was injured in the incident and the umpires reached their hotel in central Chittagong safely.

"An incident has been reported," Imam said. "An object was hurled at the vehicle carrying the match officials that had the board's security escort. It damaged part of the window, but nobody was hurt. Everyone reached the hotel safely. The BCB condemns the incident and are taking the matter seriously. The investigation is being conducted in consultation with local police. We are awaiting a report from them."

Bangladesh were beaten by Pakistan in the third and final ODI by 58 runs, completing a 3-0 series sweep.

Chittagong does not have a record of crowd attacks but during the last World Cup the West Indies team bus was pelted with stones after Bangladesh were bowled out for 58 and lost by nine wickets in Mirpur.
