Allahabad: Dejected by continued failures of local boy Mohammed Kaif, fans threw used Mobil oil and black paint at the cricketers's house here to vent their anger. The same people, who had fussed over and pampered their "very own" Kaif for his superlative show in the NatWest Trophy final in England last year, could not resist from giving vent to their frustration after India slumped to a nine-wicket defeat against Australia at Centurion on Saturday.

Saddled by a poor run of form, Kaif failed yet again scoring just one run before being done in by a Jason Gillespie delivery. The front wall of Kaif's three-storied house in Kydganj area was blackened by cricket fanatics when they hurled used Mobil oil and black paint filled in polythene bags, Kaif's elder brother Mohammed Saif said. "The family members were fast asleep when the incident took place," Saif said. Kaif's father Mohammed Tarif was the first to notice the wall and inform the police. The family has demanded security cover in the wake of the incident, Saif said.
