Lucknow: Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Lucknow by 18 runs in the 43rd league match of the current IPL season. RCB’s Kohli and LSG’s counsel Gautham Gambhir got into a heated argument after the match ended when both the players shook hands with each other. Then LSG player Amit Mishra also had an argument with Kohli. Earlier, Kohli and Naveen-ul-Haq had an argument.
However, other players from both teams pushed them away. Those few minutes on the pitch flew by as the game ended.
Lucknow chased down the target of 127 runs. The pitch was very relaxed. But the Lucknow players tried to play short and lost the wicket. At the same time, the team’s captain KL Rahul came to bat after losing 9 wickets due to injury. This was also a reason for the defeat of the Lucknow team.
In the second innings of this match, Kohli celebrated aggressively whenever Lucknow lost wickets. The support for the RCB team at the stadium was also overwhelming. He scored 31 runs off 30 balls in batting and took 2 catches as well.
In this match, Lucknow player Naveen-ul-Haq had an argument with the wicketkeeper while batting. That seems to be the reason for the argument between Gambhir and Kohli after the match. When Kohli shook hands with Naveen-ul-Haq after the match, he asked Kohli something. That was the starting point for it all.
Gambhir then intercepted the Lucknow player Meyers who was talking to Kohli after the prize giving event. It was all broadcast live.
Earlier in the current season, both the teams played at the Chinnaswamy Cricket Ground in Bengaluru. Lucknow won it. At that time, Gautham Gambhir had shown a gesture to say ‘quiet’. His act was criticized at the time.
Why is Kohli sledging Naveen ul Haq? Kohli didn’t expect Naveen ul Haq to respond like that. Looks like Kohli got scaredpic.twitter.com/uarkpacxRJ
