The match between Royal Challengers and Lucknow Super Giants was quite an intense one. Royal Challengers Bangalore made a mockery of Lucknow Super Giants as the home team were not able to chase 127 runs in their 20 overs. Lucknow meekly gave up losing wickets in clumps as they eventually lost the match by 18 runs.
After the match, there was a heated conversation between Virat Kohli and Lucknow Super Giants mentor Gautam Gambhir. Both share a history of clashes in the past as they have had some heated moments during their playing days.
After Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) defeated Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir got into a verbal altercation. Following the game, Kohli and Gambhir were the centre of attention as they were seen arguing as the two franchises shook hands. Notably, Gambhir was seen gesturing towards Kohli, and the latter didn’t hesitate before charging at him.
After the match was over, there were handshakes among the players. After the handshakes, RCB superstar Virat Kohli was having a conversation with LSG opener Kyle Mayers. Gautam Gambhir, who is a sore loser, tried to take away Mayers from Virat Kohli refraining him to chat with the Indian Maestro.
Kohli eventually walked away but Gambhir was still fuming at the former captain. This triggered Kohli who eventually had to give back to Gambhir. Gambhir tried to stop the LSG ‘mentor’, but he was in no mood to stop. Both the players had to be taken away with things heated to an extent where the umpires had to step in.
KL Rahul later had a separate conversation with Kohli and tried to calm him. Virat was having an animated chat with the LSG skipper.
Many shades of Kohli
Maxwell had struck in his first over. He had fired the delivery wide and hadn’t offered too much pace on it. Krunal had come shuffling down the track and had looked for an inside-out loft. He had just relied on timing and hadn’t bothered to exert any power on that. He had chipped it off the bottom half of the bat and Kohli had completed a fine catch running back and to his right at long-off. After taking the catch, Virat was chuffed to bits. He looked at the Lucknow crowd and asked them to shut up signaling them with his finger. He then blew a kiss to someone in the crowd and let out a huge roar.
He followed this catch with another stunner to dismiss Ayush Badoni. Badoni, who came to open in place of the injured KL Rahul, creamed the cover drive over Kohli’s head. But the former RCB captain leaped in the air to take another blinder. He blew a kiss yet another time and asked the crowd to cheer for RCB. After so many days, Virat Kohli is looking pumped and up for a challenge.
