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.article source: crickettimesAlso Read: India May Tour South Africa In August For Three-Match T20I Series

CSK vs MI Dream11 IPL 2020 Prediction, Gameplay 11Given their history and success in the Indian Premier League, a match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians is sparking a lot of interest. However, given how the season has turned for both teams so far, one seems clearly favorable. CSK is completely discolored. They started on a note promising a victory over the defending champions, but have since fallen to the bottom of the pile. MI rebounded from their season-opening loss and are third on the points table.CSK vs MI head-to-headChennai and Mumbai have met 29 times before including once this season. Historically, MI has been the dominant player with 17 wins so far. On the other hand, CSK won 12 matches. Their last encounter was also the first match in the 2020 IPL Championship when CSK won by five wickets.CSK vs MI Pitch and Toss ReportSharjah was a hitter's paradise when the season started. And as he progressed, the bowlers began to have a lot to say now. Stability then shooting appears to be the best strategy now, and it's something many CSK hitters prefer. MI also have hitters that take a vacation before going to the hammer and pincers. However, they also have a pair of great hitters that have proven capable of chasing shooters from the very first ball. The team that has scored second in the last two games has won here. However, the first team had won the previous treble.CSK vs MI Fantasy PredictionsQuinton de Kock (captain), Faf du Plessis (vice-captain), Krunal Pandya, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Ambati Rayudu, Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit Sharma, Sam CurranCSK vs MI expected playing XICSK: Sam Curran, Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav/N Jagadeesan, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Piyush Chawla/, Josh HazlewoodMI: Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit BumrahCSK Squads vs Complete MIChennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni (captain), Josh Hazlewood, Murali Vijay, Ambati Rayudu, Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Lungi Ngidi, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Imran Tahir, Mitchell Santner, Shardul Thakur, Sam Curran, N Jagadeesan, KM Asif, Monu Kumar, R Sai Kishore, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Karn SharmaMumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (captain), Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Aditya Tare, Anmolpreet Singh, Anukul Roy, Chris Lynn, Dhawal Kulkarni, Digvijay Deshmukh, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, James Pattison, Jasprit Bumrah, Jayant Yadav, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mohsin Khan, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Prince Balwant Rai, Quinton De Kock, Rahul Chahar, Saurabh Tiwary, Sherfane Rutherford, Suryakumar Yadav, Trent BoultRead More About: RR VS SRH Match no. 40.
KKR vs KXIP Dream11 IPL 2020 PredictionBelatedly by four wins in a row, Kings XI Punjab hopes to preserve the Giant as they face the revival of the Kolkata Knight Riders in a mid-table match here on Monday. Punjab is ranked fifth on the points table after winning five matches in 11 games, while Kolkata is slightly better, as it ranked fourth with 12 points. A Punjab victory would lift them to the top four, while a KKR victory would lift them to 14 points, like the top three teams in the competition, boosting their chances in the play-off. As the race to the playoffs rages, both sides know the value of winning on Monday. KXIP regained its form, ending its five-game losing streak with a victory over third-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore. Since then, the team led by KL Rahul has never looked back, defeating the two best teams in the tournament, the Indians from Mumbai and the capital cities of Delhi, plus Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, they must also win the remaining matches in order for the playoffs to take place. KXIP has hitters that match the style of Rahul, the tournament's top scorer in Running, and Mayank Agarwal. The presence of the illustrious Chris Gayle has inspired the team, and since his inclusion in the eleventh game, the Punjab team has never lost a match. Nicholas Pooran also looks dangerous, but Glenn Maxwell's precarious form remains a concern.KKR will also be enthusiastic after its landslide win over formidable Delhi Capitals and will try desperately to maintain the winning momentum. After an embarrassing loss of eight wickets to Royal Challengers Bangalore, the champion twice regrouped and caused a 59 round loss to Capitals, who is second on the points table. Promoted to the open tour, Nitesh Rana plunged into his new role and took a whirlwind of 81 while he was competing in 115th place with Sunil Narine (64). The spinning leg of Varun Chakravarthy then shattered the mid-ranking of the DC with five points.KKR vs KXIP Presentation ReportThe cricket stadium in Sharjah has slowed dramatically, with new bowlers recently taking over. When the tournament started, Sharjah tape gave a lot of running and support to the batsmen who enjoyed hitting this wicket, but it's not the same anymore. The likes of Siraj and Bolt enjoyed conditions due to the show's early swing, which must also be the case in this game. Interestingly, shooters will be the key to luck on both sides, and hitters should be able to play their natural game once they get used to the rhythm of the surface. However, the dimensions of the floor prefer the mixture because the straight boundaries are very small. With the likes of Gail, Rahul, Buran, Morgan, and Russell, we can look forward to a race festival on Monday. Both teams will look to the chase by winning the lottery, with a competitive total number of 170 in that location.
