According to a report on the Cricket Australia website, no one was seated next to the window where the rock pierced the glass and fell inside the vehicle.* Australia had beaten India by eight wickets with 27 balls to spare and were on their way to the hotel when the incident occurred.
They had a similar scare in Bangladesh a couple of months ago, with authorities believing street children had thrown something at their bus. The BCB immediately increased security for the Australian team to ensure there were no further mishaps.
