Old foes and temperamental Delhi boys, Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir got into a verbal altercation after Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 18 runs at the BRSABV Ekana Cricket Stadium.
Old foes and fiery characters at each others throats
During Lucknow's chase of Bangalore's modest target of 127 runs Kohli was seen gesturing to the crowd to raise the decibel inside the stadium as RCB was leaning towards victory with LSG regularly losing wickets.
After the game, Kohli took aim at old foe Gautam Gambhir by telling the crowd he would never ask them to shut up. This was in response to Gautam Gambhir's gesture at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, where he held his finger to his lip, asking the RCB fans to remain silent after Lucknow's one-wicket win over Bangalore.
In each other's faces
Things heated up as the players went to shake hands after the game. Virat Kohli was seen talking to Kyle Mayers when Gambhir came and pulled Mayers away, and this sprung chaos as the two then got into a verbal altercation. The duo had to be separated as things began to tense up.
This is not the first time the two have gotten into a fight. In 2013, Virat, then captain of RCB, had a verbal spat with his then-India teammate Gautam Gambhir during the game. The two are known for their aggressive style of play and tend to leave it all on the field.
