Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir got involved in a heated exchange after Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) defeated Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by 18 runs at the BRSABV Ekana Cricket Stadium.

While the players were shaking hands after the game, the words were exchanged between LSG pacer Naveen-ul-Haq and Kohli. This disagreement did not end there, as Gambhir intervened by pulling away his team’s opening batter Kyle Mayers from a conversation with Kohli. Moments later, Gambhir and his players approached Kohli aggressively, with the injured LSG caption KL Rahul attempting to restrain them. Despite Kohli’s attempt to pacify Gambhir, the chat soon turned hostile, and RCB skipper Faf du Plessis had to step in to separate the two. 

Kohli’s animated behaviour throughout the fielding innings during the away match, which RCB successfully defended with the support of more crowd visitors than the hosts, may have been the cause of the altercation.

In the 17th over of the run-chase, when the game was nearly over, Kohli had a heated exchange with Naveen, and Amit Mishra and the umpire had to intervene. Though it is unclear what led to the altercation, there may have been some bad blood between the two sides from a previous encounter.
