Bus Carrying West Indian Cricket Team Stoned by Angry Fans


The West Indies posted a nine-wicket win over host nation Bangladesh in the Cricket World Cup. Then things got ugly as Bangladeshi supporters stoned a bus carrying the West Indian team.

Chris Gayle, the captain of the victorious squad, provided some commentary while it was happening.

Amazingly, the Bangladesh fans were actually looking for their own countrymen.

“The fans thought that the bus was carrying the Bangladeshi cricket team,” a source told Metro.co.uk. “They were angry with the Bangladeshi team. … No-one has been arrested so far.”

You can send flowers to the West Indies squad if you’re feeling so inclined.
