On April 27, 2021, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) faced off against Delhi Capitals (DC) in a highly anticipated Indian Premier League (IPL) match. However, amidst all the excitement and hype surrounding the match, a controversial incident occurred involving RCB captain Virat Kohli and former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly.
Kohli ignores Ganguly
During the match, tensions seemed to be running high between Kohli and Ganguly, who was in attendance. Eagle-eyed fans noticed that Kohli appeared to give Ganguly a death stare during the match, further fueling speculation about a potential rift between the two.
After the match, as is customary in cricket, the players and match officials were supposed to shake hands as a sign of good sportsmanship. However, when Kohli and Ganguly met, they seemed to avoid making eye contact with each other, leading to further speculation about their relationship.
Kohli unfollowed Ganguly
The incident quickly went viral on social media, with fans and media outlets speculating about the reasons behind the apparent tension between Kohli. The rift between Virat Kohli and Sourav Ganguly has been the subject of much speculation since October 2021, when Kohli was replaced as India’s ODI captain by Rohit Sharma. Many fans and analysts pointed to the move as evidence of a power struggle between Kohli and Ganguly, who was the current BCCI president.
The recent turn of events has added fuel to the fire of these rumors. In a move that has caused a massive uproar on social media, Kohli has reportedly unfollowed Ganguly on Instagram. Earlier, Kohli and Ganguly were following each other on Instagram. However, after the incident, it seems that the tension between the two has grown further.
Following the news that Virat Kohli had unfollowed Sourav Ganguly on Instagram, it has now been reported that Ganguly has retaliated by unfollowing Kohli on the social media site as well. While both Kohli and Ganguly have remained tight-lipped about the issue, their actions on social media have only added to the sense of intrigue surrounding the matter. Many fans have taken to social media themselves to speculate about the reasons behind the rift, with some suggesting that it may be related to the power struggle within the BCCI.
