Gautam Gambhir, the legendary player for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Virat Kohli posted a comment on social media that appeared to be in response to the incident following the IPL match on Monday.
The night after getting into a verbal altercation with a former India teammate and coach of the Lucknow Super Giants. In a low-scoring game, RCB defeated LSG by 18 runs.
However, the fight between Kohli and Gambhir brought to mind their long-standing animosity that first surfaced in 2013. When Gambhir was also an active player and captained the Kolkata Knight Riders, garnered more attention than RCB’s victory.
Following his altercation with Gambhir, the former India captain Kohli posted a story on Instagram and made a suggestive comment, possibly referring to the responses to the incident as “opinion” and “perspective” rather than “fact” and “truth.”.
Nothing we hear is factual; everything we hear is an opinion.
Virat Kohli wrote in his Instagram story, “Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth”.
When the players shook hands at the end of the game on Monday. The incident occurred as Naveen-ul-Haq, a bowler from Lucknow and Kohli appeared to exchange some words.
At this point, Gambhir intervened to maintain order but when the latter charged back at the former RCB captain, Kohli and Gambhir engaged in a confrontation.
The IPL Code of Conduct was then broken, leading to fines for Kohli, Gambhir and Naveen.
The Lucknow players then attempted to pull Gambhir away. But when the two ex-India teammates came close to touching each other. Kohli appeared to be attempting to put out the fire with some soothing words.
But it was ineffective because Gambhir was still agitated. At that point, LSG leg-spinner Amit Mishra intervened to try to maintain order. Possible causes of this latest altercation include Kohli’s animated behaviour during his team’s bowling stint during the game itself.
RCB went on to defend 126 but was on the way to their 18-run victory. Kohli made a “silent” gesture to the crowd after taking a catch that sent Krunal Pandya back early in the run-chase.
The on-field umpires and Mishra had to intervene after a fight between Kohli and Naveen later in the LSG innings’ 17th over.
