What Caused Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir to Fight? The Reason for the Post-Match Storm


In a low-scoring thriller on Sunday in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants, Faf du Plessis’ team prevailed by 18 runs. Instead of RCB’s outstanding bowling performance in the game, Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir’s altercation became the main topic of conversation. After the game, the two legendary cricketers got into a furious argument about a few events that happened in the match’s closing stages. But it appeared as though the foundation for the conflict had already been set a few overs earlier.

Naveen-ul-Haq and Kohli of the LSG engaged in a collision that may have served as the storm’s ignition. According to reports, Kohli and Naveen got into a fight during the interval between the 16th and 17th over. Even LSG’s Amit Mishra attempted to mediate the conflict between the two parties as a result of the altercation, but he instead got into a fight with former India teammate Virat Kohli. However, it appeared that Kohli had instructed Mishra to attempt to reason with Naveen instead of himself.

Even the RCB pacer Mohammed Siraj didn’t appear to be pleased with Naveen, as was clear from the grimace on his face.

Virat and Naveen also had an awkward handshake after the game, during which the Afghanistan pacer appeared displeased with the RCB batsman. A little while afterwards, LSG captain KL Rahul seems to have likewise made an effort to diffuse the situation between the two. Another video appeared to show Naveen refusing to speak with Kohli, despite Rahul, his captain, pleading with him to.

Later, a fight between Kohli and Gambhir broke out as the two cricket legends sparred over the events that occurred during the final few overs on the field. The conversation between Kyle Mayers and Virat Kohli is likely where the Gambhir-Kohli conversation began. It was difficult to stop Gambhir and Kohli after that incident. The IPL imposed substantial fines on Naveen, Gambhir, and Kohli for violating the Code of Conduct.

Naveen received a 50% fine, while Gambhir and Kohli received 100% fines on their respective match fees.
