A rock was thrown at Australia's team bus after Tuesday's Twenty20 victory in India and smashed a window, batsman Aaron Finch appears to have revealed.

Following the tourists' comfortable eight-wicket win in Guwahati that levelled the three-match series at 1-1, Australia's Finch posted a message on Twitter which featured an image of a smashed bus window.

It was accompanied by the words: "Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to the hotel!!"

It was retweeted by Finch's team-mate David Warner, who opened the batting for Australia alongside him during the match.

Press Association Sport has contacted Cricket Australia for comment.

Jason Behrendorff took four wickets as India were bowled out for 118 before an unbroken third-wicket partnership of 109 from Moises Henriques (62no) and Travis Head (48no) helped Australia coast to victory. The series concludes on Friday in Hyderabad.

Just prior to his tweet about the team bus, Finch posted a message which said: "Brilliant performance tonight Australia!! @Mozzie21 @travishead34 & JDorff5 were exceptional! Being (sic) on the decider in Hyderabad!!"

Cricket Australia said on its website there were no injuries but "the Australian players were understandably shaken up by the incident".

It was only last month that a window on Australia's team bus was broken in Bangladesh, believed to be caused by a small rock or stone being thrown at the vehicle.

The incident happened as Australia travelled back to their hotel following day one of the second Test in Chittagong.
