A broken window of the Australia team bus is "believed" to have been caused by a small rock or stone thrown at the bus when the players were returning to the hotel on Monday evening in Chittagong. No player was injured, Cricket Australia confirmed. The incident is under investigation while security has been increased on the team's route to the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.
"On route back to the hotel last night a window on the Australian team bus was broken. No one was injured in the incident," Cricket Australia's security manager Sean Carroll said. "Team security personnel are currently in discussion with local authorities while they investigate the cause, which is believed to have come from a small rock or stone.
"Bangladesh authorities are taking the incident seriously and security has been increased on the route.
"To date we have been happy with security measures that have been in place and we are comfortable with the response from the Bangladesh authorities and the increased security presence we have been provided in light of the incident."
The BCB issued a statement after the lunch break on Tuesday to say it was treating the matter with "utmost seriousness" and a "high-power" committee had been formed by the concerned security agencies to investigate the matter. The statement also said the Australian team had expressed its "satisfaction and comfort" with the beefed up security measures after Monday's incident.
ESPNcricinfo has learned the BCB authorities believe that street children may have thrown something at the bus.
Both teams reached the ground safely on Tuesday morning for the second day's play after Bangladesh were 253 for 6 at the end of the first day.
