Virat Kohli, the star batter for Royal Challengers Bangalore, and LSG coach Gautam Gambhir got into a heated argument during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match between the two teams in Lucknow on Monday. Whenever an LSG batter was dismissed while the team was chasing, Kohli was frequently seen becoming quite animated. In the most recent IPL 2023 match between the two teams, Gambhir made a “shut up” gesture towards the Bengaluru crowd. It’s unclear if Virat responded to that or not. But when the game was over, the two shook hands and everything appeared to be as it should. Kyle Mayers, the LSG’s star opener, then approached Kohli and began conversing with the legendary RCB player. Gambhir arrived and took Mayers away at this point. A short while after this incident, images from the game showed Gambhir being animated and speaking to Kohli, who appeared to be the more composed of the two. KL Rahul and support personnel separated the two, along with other players. The LSG captain Rahul and Kohli were then seen conversing in-depth. The calm before the storm – ft.
