Breaking: West Indies Team Stoned


The Mirpur crowd were not too pleased with Bangladesh's poor showing, Bangladesh v West Indies, Group B, World Cup 2011, Mirpur, March 4, 2011
The West Indies team bus has been stoned on its way back to the team hotel. There are no casualties or injuries, the team management confirmed, but the players are not amused. Chris Gayle tweeted moments after the incident, "This is some bullshit.....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 could make 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. "Two windows were cracked, but not shattered. We are now back at the hotel, both teams are back at the hotel and are safe."
