A video clipping allegedly showing Indian cricketer Ambati Rayudu involved in a scuffle with a man in what appears to be an incident of road rage went viral on social media on Thursday.

The video clip shows the batsman stepping out of his car and indulging in heated exchange of words and a physical fight. Bystanders intervened to separate the two.

The batsman, who has been in and out of the Indian team, was seen charging at the man, believed to be a pedestrian. The spat broke out during an argument over rash driving.

The incident apparently occurred in Hyderabad but it was not clear in which area and when. No complaint was lodged with any police station in the city.

"It is unfair on part of a learned cricketer to stoop to the level of manhandling a senior citizen," B Vijay, who released the video to media, told Mirror

When some reporters approached Rayudu, he brushed it aside as a minor issue.

Watch the video below.

Rayudu was also in the centre of controversy last year, after he got into an argument with spinner Harbhajan Singh on the field during a match of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
