With this, Australian players are getting a head of state security. Some guards are keeping an eye on the crowd as they enter the stadium. Also, BCB blocked the roads from the hotel to the ground. To ensure the security of the Australian players, they are receiving a high-end security.

Iqbal Bahar, Chittagong Metropolitan Police Commissioner, in a statement, said:

“We think there was no major incident. The road through which we were taking them [Australia players and support staff] went into a renovation, and a small piece of stone unexpectedly hit the window after coming under the security car and hit the team bus.“We have formed an enquiry committee to look into the matter while having changed our route already. We don’t think there is any security scare, but still, we are not keeping any stone unturned to provide the best possible security.”

Before the tour, Bangladesh had promised a complete security to the Aussies. As a result of that, Australia gave heads-up to the tour. In 2015, Australia had cancelled the tour to Bangladesh because of security.

Sean Carroll, Cricket Australia Security Manager, in light of the event, said:

“To date, we have been happy with the 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.” 

Bangladesh are leading this 2-match test series by 1-0. They won the first test by 20 runs.
