Cricinfo reports on a very nasty incident overnight in Dacca - check this out:
The bus carrying the West Indies players has been stoned on its way back to the team hotel after they thrashed Bangladesh by nine wickets in Mirpur. There were no injuries, the team management confirmed to ESPNcricinfo, and both squads were safely back at the hotel but the players were shaken.
News of the incident spread across the world within moments and will raise questions about the security provided to teams at the tournament.
"This is some bullshit," Chris Gayle tweeted moments after the incident. "Bangladesh stoning our bus!!! Freaking glass break!!! This is crap, can't believe..what next bullets!!!! Kiss teeth".
The team's media manager, Philip Spooner, confirmed that two windows cracked, but none shattered, and hence no stone made its way inside. "We left the ground, and on our way back to the hotel, a couple of stones did hit our window," Spooner said. "We are now back at the hotel, both teams are back at the hotel and are safe."
The incident occurred after West Indies completed a crushing nine-wicket victory over the hosts in a match that lasted all of 31.1 overs. The discontent among the crowd could be seen when they started throwing the placards that have "4" and "6" written on them onto the playing field the moment Bangladesh lost their last wicket to be bowled out for their lowest-ever ODI total - 58.
Whilst it's easy to get a smile at the irony here, there's a very serious side to this story. Clearly, security in Dacca last night was lax, and at a tournament like the World Cup, that is utterly unacceptable.
The ICC has taken a major punt in giving Bangladesh co-hosting rights to its flagship tournament. Last night it all went wrong.
