Australia's Commonwealth Games boss Perry Crosswhite on Friday denied involvement of any Australian athlete in the vanadalism at the Games Village.

It has been reported that some Australian athletes went on rampage at Village following India's fabulous Test series win over Australia, out of frustration.

The report said the Aussies also raised fans against Indian batting icon Sachin Tendulkar, who was pivotal in India's victory.

According to Herald Sun, "Crosswhite confirmed that a washing machine was thrown off the eighth floor of an Australian residential tower in the athletes’ village."

However, Crosswhite said he would be surprised if it was an Australian and blamed athletes from other countries who were in the Australian building at the time of the incident.

The Delhi Police said it has not received any complaint from the Organising Committee but confirmed the rampage.

Reports the matter has been sorted out after talks between OC officials and Australian chef de mission.
