The rain-delayed match between LSG and RCB at Ekana Stadium proved to be an enthralling contest in many ways. The acrimonious altercation between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir, which occurred after RCB’s 18-run victory in a low-scoring match, drew the most attention after RCB’s victory. However, after the Kohli-Gambhir crisis concluded, KL Rahul was observed speaking with Kohli to resolve the situation.
The LSG captain most likely summoned Naveen-ul-Haq to apologize to Kohli for their acrimonious exchange during the post-match handshake. In a strange turn of events, however, Naveen declined KL’s offer and continued on the field. While Naveen-ul-Haq disobeyed his captain, Kohli appeared furious at the batsman’s actions.
After the contest concluded, Kyle Mayers was also observed speaking with Virat Kohli, and as their conversation became heated, Gautam Gambhir intervened to escalate the situation. Despite the fact that the players involved in the altercation were restrained by several comrades, the incident took an ugly turn on the field.
RCB scored 126 runs in a rain-delayed match on the strength of Du Plessis’ 44, while LSG’s Naveen-ul-Haq took three wickets. Despite losing wickets at regular intervals and being dismissed for 108 runs, LSG were unable to cross the finish line while pursuing a subpar total. LSG’s highest individual tally came from Krishnappa Gowtham, who amassed 23 runs.
