What Caused Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir to Fight?

Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir had an on-field clash after RCB defeated LSG in an IPL 2023 match. But, the trigger-point of the altercation was an incident involving Naveen-ul-Haq that took place a few overs earlier.

Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Lucknow Super Giants by an 18-run margin in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match on Sunday. However, the fight between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir became the main topic of conversation rather than RCB’s outstanding bowling performance in the game.

Naveen-ul-Haq and Kohli engaged in a war of words that may have served as the storm’s ignition. According to reports, Kohli and Naveen got into a fight during the interval between the 16th and 17th over.

Even LSG’s Amit Mishra attempted to mediate the conflict between the two parties, but he instead got into a fight with former India teammate Virat Kohli. However, it appeared that Kohli had instructed Mishra to try and reason with Naveen instead of himself.

Virat and Naveen also had an awkward handshake after the game, during which the Afghanistan pacer appeared displeased with the RCB batsman. A little while afterward, LSG captain KL Rahul seems to have likewise tried to diffuse the situation between the two.

Another video showed Naveen refusing to speak with Kohli, despite Rahul, his captain, pleading with him to. Later, a fight between Kohli and Gambhir broke out as the two cricket legends sparred over the events that occurred during the final few overs on the pitch. The conversation between Kyle Mayers and Virat Kohli is likely where the Gambhir-Kohli controversy began.

While Gambhir and Kohli were given a 100% fine on their respective match fee, Naveen was given a 50% fine.
