‘Cricket images that hit hard’: Virat Kohli-Gautam Gambhir rivalry captured in intense images | Cricket News


NEW DELHI: Whenever Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir pit against each other, the focus shifts on their rivalry more than the match as the duo were involved in a heated exchange on the field in the past.
They both had a verbal altercation during IPL 2023 when Gambhir, now Kolkata Knight Riders‘s mentor, was associated with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).

The confrontation began with a fiery exchange between Virat and LSG pacer Naveen Ul Haq.At the conclusion of the match, Gambhir stepped onto the field and engaged in another round of verbal sparring with Kohli.
One of the most notable incidents between the two occurred during an IPL match in 2013, where Kohli and Gambhir were involved in a heated exchange on the field. The incident grabbed headlines and fueled speculation about their relationship.

Ahead of the much-anticipated match against Royal Challengers Bengaluru on Friday, KKR added a fuel to the fire with their post on their social media handle X, captioning “Cricket images that hit hard.”
KKR shared two images, the first featuring Gambhir prominently in the foreground with a blurred figure lingering in the background. As the image sharpens, it reveals Kohli staring intently in Gambhir’s direction.
However, over the years, both players have downplayed the significance of any rivalry and have spoken positively about each other’s cricketing abilities. They have also played together for the Indian team and shared successful partnerships on the field.
Overall, while there may have been tensions between them on the field, they have both acknowledged and respected each other’s contributions to the game.
