Gujarat cricketer R P Singh, whose team today created a history by lifting maiden Ranji Trophy title, brought shame to the Indian cricket after he was caught on cam throwing fan’s cell phone on the ground.
A mobile video has surfaced on social media in which RP Singh is seen walking towards a set of fans during the Ranji match. A few of them were holding out their cell phones demanding selfies. Singh, instead of obliging or even refusing to do so, simply snatched a phone out of the hands of one of the fans and threw it to the side.
This was not the first time RP Singh has come under the spotlight for his behaviour, earlier on January 12 the left-arm medium pacer had reportedly shown the middle finger at the fans during Gujarat’s Ranji Trophy final against Mumbai.
RP Singh has represented India in 14 Tests, 58 ODIs and 10 T20Is and played a big role in India winning the ICC World Twenty20 in 2007 under MS Dhoni.
Earlier in the day, Gujarat created history after beating Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy finals by 5 wickets and winning the title for the very first time at the Holkar Stadium in Indore.
Gujarat skipper Parthiv Patel led from the front and scored 143 off 196 in the second innings. Parthiv batted almost the entire day and scored his ton while chasing a target of 312 runs.
