Fans were treated to some of the most electrifying moments ever witnessed in the IPL when Royal Challengers Bangalore locked horns with the Lucknow Super Giants at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow on Monday. The match ended in favor of RCB. But there was something else that caught the attention of the whole cricket world.
The former RCB skipper, Virat Kohli, was involved in some heated exchanges, first with LSG pacer Naveen-ul-Haq and then with LSG mentor Gautam Gambhir. Virat and Naveen were involved in a heated exchange during the game.
The first instance took place in the 17th over of the second inning. Then the second incident happened during the player’s handshake after the game. It forced the BCCI to fine Virat and Naveen, along with Gambhir, heavily for breaching the IPL’s code of conduct.
Notably, after all this, Virat took to his Instagram handle and posted a cryptic post, and Naveen was also not left behind. He also fired back on social media. The LSG pacer posted a cryptic message to his Instagram story, which looked like a dig at the former RCB skipper. He wrote, “You get what you deserved that’s how it should be and that’s how it goes.”
Earlier, the former RCB skipper posted a message on his Instagram and wrote, “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”
The former RCB skipper was involved in the war of words during the 17th over. He was seen showing boot to him. Even after the game, both were seen having a go at each other. Eventually, RCB ended up with an 18-run win. With this win, RCB has moved one spot up to 5th place. They will now face Delhi Capitals in their next game on May 6.
