IPL News: The bad fight between Gautam Gambir and Virat Kohli occupied more headlines than the winning punches in the match. Fans and critics still remember how the Delhi boys went into a verbal battle in 2013 during the IPL match when the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) hosted the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the M Chinnaswamy stadium.
However, the cause of this battle is still unknown. Gambir and Kohli both played down the accident on many occasions, but the man who separated the duo from the confrontation recently spoke on the same thing.
Rajat Bhatia, who tried to stop Gambir and Kohli, did his best to calm things down, recently spoke to the Asianet Newsable, and said that he was just very competitive players who act very strangely in the midst of this moment.
"This is something that happened when two aggressive leaders played, and always wanted to do their best and win their teams." "Even if they had some kind of collision in that match, that was just part of the game," said Bhatia, who was part of the KKR team in that match.
"Later on, I didn't see them fighting (Gambir and Kohli). In the midst of the moment, many things happen. But, it shouldn't happen for the worst. The 40-year-old added," It wasn't like that on that day. "
In that match, RCB won that match with eight wickets over KKR. After chasing 155 to win, the hosts rode Chris Gayle's sparkling punch 85 strokes to hit the target with 15 balls to spare.
Young Kohli scored 35 before being caught by Ewen Morgan outside Lakshmipathi Balaji in the tenth final. It was his class that led to an unpleasant conflict during the celebration of KKR.
