Dhaka - The West Indies squad bus was attacked by angry Bangladesh fans on Friday after the home team crashed to a nine-wicket defeat in the Cricket World Cup.

Two windows of the bus were shattered as it was leaving the Sher-e-Bangla stadium after the match, a police official said, adding that no player was injured.

"The fans thought it was the Bangladeshi team bus and they hurled stones at it," Imtiaz Ahmed, deputy commissioner of police in Dhaka, said.

"The window panes were shattered, but no one was injured."

West Indian star Chris Gayle had tweeted: This is some bullshit.....Bangladesh stoning our bus!!! Freaking glass Break!!! This is crap,can't believe..what next bullets!!!! Kiss teeth.

Before adding: This is ridiculous. Damn. World Cup with so much security and this happens. Big joke. Trust me I am not keen here. Every player lay flat.
