India discard, Yusuf Pathan, allegedly reacted to rude remarks by a young spectator and slapped him during a Ranji Trophy match played between Baroda and Jammu and Kashmir.

The Baroda all-rounder was upset by the remarks passed by the young spectator when he was batting at the Reliance Cricket Stadium, where the hosts were playing Jammu and Kashmir.

According to Snehal Parikh, Secretary of Baroda Cricket Association (BCA), the spectator had been making rude remarks against Yusuf as well as other players.

"This youngster had been shouting and passing indecent comments against Yusuf and other players such as Ambati Rayudu, when they were batting. Yusuf was in no mood to tolerate such a behaviour. Thus, after he got out, he called that youngster inside the dressing room and allegedly slapped him twice," said Parikh.

According to Parikh, when Yusuf's younger brother and cricketer, Irfan Pathan, learnt about the incident, he rushed to the dressing room to bring the situation under control.

As per another BCA Secretary Anshuman Gaekwad, the matter was 'amicably resolved' after a family member of the youth came and apologised on his behalf. Parikh on his part, claimed that the match referee will send a report about today's incident to BCCI for further action.
