It all happened on 1 May 2023 during the match which was played at Ekana Sports Stadium, Lucknow. Earlier during the LSG innings, LSG batter Amit Mishra made a complaint to the on-field umpires that Virat Kohli was constantly sledging the other LSG batter Naveen-ul-Haq but it didn’t have any effect on Virat Kohli. However, things turned uglier when in the 17th over, Naveen also reacted on Virat’s verbal abuse which made Virat further angry and he kept on saying things to Naveen. Virat also indicated towards his shoes while saying things to Naveen.
After the match when the players of both the teams were shaking hands with each other, Naveen-ul-Haq brushed off Virat’s hand in a rude manner and also said something to him which further increased the altercation. While Naveen-ul-Haq was taken away by other players, Kyle Mayers came to Virat and asked why he was constantly abusing his team and in response, Virat asked as to why he was staring at him. Just then, mentor of LSG, Gautam Gambhir took Kyle Mayers away from Virat who spoke, “Bloody f*@k , I wanted to give him a sendoff” which was meant for Kyle Mayers but it didn’t go well with Gautam Gambhir and he came back to have a word with Virat.
While Virat tells Gambhir that he hasn’t said anything to him, the latter says to the former that his players are like family to him so if he has said anything to his players, this means he has said it to him.
Other players including KL Rahul, Amit Mishra and Faf du Plessis separated Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli otherwise the situation could have worsen. The BCCI also took a strong action as it imposed a fine of 100 percent match fees on Gambhir and Kohli while a fine of 50 percent match fees was imposed on Naveen-ul-Haq.
