Reputation of the IPL certainly gets hampered because of the unfortunate incidents that take place during and after the matches and the BCCI should take strict actions in such cases.
The heated discussion between Virat Kohli (the former skipper of Royal Challengers Bangalore) and Gautam Gambhir (mentor of Lucknow Super Giants) that took place after the match has left many former cricketers and fans upset because it not just against the spirit of the game but it also spoils image of the Indian cricket in the world.
It all started during the 17th over of LSG innings when LSG batter Naveen-ul-Haq reacted on something said by Virat Kohli which further annoyed the latter and he spoke many things after that as well. Naveen-ul-Haq didn’t say much after that but while shaking hands with Virat, he said something and also brushed off Virat’s hands in an aggressive manner.
This agitated Kohli and things got heated up, later on Gautam Gambhir also had a heated discussion with Virat and they both were somehow separated by Amit Mishra, KL Rahul and Faf du Plessis.
Later on, Naveen and Virat both made cryptic posts on their Instagram account and as per reports, Naveen-ul-Haq said to one of his LSG teammates, “I have come here to play in the IPL, not to take abuse from anyone.”
Well, nobody should be abused in the game of cricket as it is a gentleman’s game, what do you say?
