So what happened in Lucknow on Monday night?

It was only a matter of time before these two hotheads clashed, and when they did, things got downright nasty. Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli, both notorious for their unfiltered opinions and mutual disdain, finally came to blows during a recent IPL match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants.

According to insiders, the foul-mouthed fight was a sight to behold, with enough north Indian profanity to make even Ben Stokes blush! Some fans were left divided by the drama, with some calling it immature, while others relished the intense rivalry.

An eyewitness from one of the team dugouts spilled the beans to PTI, giving us a juicy lowdown on all the drama. "You saw on TV that Mayers and Virat were walking side by side for a few metres post match. Mayers asked Kohli why he was constantly abusing them and Virat, in turn, questioned why was he (Mayers) 'staring' at him? Before that (Amit) Mishra had complained to the umpire about Virat constantly abusing Naveen (ul-Haq), who is a No. 10 batter.

Kohli and Gambhir had involved in a heated altercation over 10 years ago as well when they were captains of RCB and KKR respectively.
