Video: Kohli and Gambhir in nasty face-off as tempers flare up after IPL match

Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir got into a fight last night.

Video shows Royal Challengers Bangalore batter Virat Kohli and Lucknow Super Giants’ Team mentor Gautam Gambhir engaged in a heated exchange after the IPL match between the two teams in Lucknow on Monday.

The trigger for the altercation was Kohli celebrating the fall of LSG wickets with his usual aggressive gestures which provoked Gambhir.


RCB had bowled LSG out for 108 after scoring 126/9 in 20 overs to win the match.

After the match ended, Kohli and Gambhir shook hands and things looked fine. However, LSG opener Kyle Mayers walked up to Kohli and started saying something when Gambhir came and took Mayers away. A little while after this incident, visuals from the match showed Gautam Gambhir in a heated exchange with Virat Kohli. Other players, including KL Rahul, and support staff were seen separating the two. Kohli was then seen having a lengthy chat with LSG captain KL Rahul.

Both Kohli and Gambhir  were fined 100% of their match fee for their aggressive behaviour which is seen as a breach of the code of conduct.
