There was a fight between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir after completion of LSG vs RCB match on Monday, 1st May.

The verbal spat between Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli during match 43 of IPL 2023 between the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants has been dominating the headlines. While the altercation video between the two cricketing greats has gone viral, another spicy clip has emerged on social media.

In a recent video that surfaced, fans were seen taking Kohli's name and directing the same towards Gambhir. The incident took place during the clash between LSG and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Ekana Stadium during the 45th fixture of the season.

Watch the video here:

The clip saw Gambhir climbing the rails of the stadium when he caught the eye of the fans in the stands chanting Kohli's name. The former Indian opener stopped for a moment and gave a death stare before walking off. The face-off between the two happened after the LSG-RCB game and the duo were fined 100 percent of their match fees for breaching the Code of Conduct of Tata IPL. The incident prompted plenty of former cricketers to come forward and give their opinions.

LSG and CSK share a point as rain plays spoilsport:

As far as the match is concerned, one can say that the Super Giants escaped a near-certain loss as persistent showers forced a washout. The Super Giants were in a pickle as the visiting side had reduced them to 125-7 when the rain intervened.

The hosts were missing the services of their regular skipper KL Rahul, forcing Krunal Pandya to step in as captain. They endured a poor start, losing three wickets for below 30 runs within the powerplay and slid to 44-5 at one stage. Only four batters got to double figures, with Ayush Badoni's unbeaten fifty restoring some sanity.

At the end of the game, LSG stood at second, while CSK was at third. Both sides had 11 points, but the former had a superior net run rate.
