Virat Kohli and Naveen-ul-Haq were the center of the attraction during the recently concluded IPL 2023 as they engaged in a heated altercation during the game between Lucnkow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore, which saw many getting involved in it.
The whole saga started when during the LSG’S innings there was a heated exchange of words between Virat Kohli and Naveen-ul-Haq during the game. The duo had some harsh words to say to each other during the game. While many thought that was an on-field tiff, the matter extended even to the post-match handshakes as well.
Virat Kohli and Naveen-ul-Haq had to go at each other and were separated by their teammates. Amidst all this, LSG mentor Gautam Gambhir stepped in too and then the spotlight was on him and Kohli as they too had a verbal spat.
What caught the attention of many was when Virat Kohli was having a word with Kyle Mayers, Gautam Gambhir interrupted and took the West Indies all-rounder away with him. This ignited another tiff between the two former Indian cricketers.
Kyle Mayers shedding light on the same aggressive nature on the field shows courage and the willingness to get your team over the line.
Speaking to Fan Code, he explained: “It’s great, sometimes you need to get at your opposition, anything you can possibly get out of the game. Being aggressive is always good, it shows courage and the willingness to get your team over the line.”
Any bowler would want to dismiss Virat Kohli – Kyle Mayers
Kyle was also asked to pick one most ‘precious’ wicket between Kohli and Rohit Sharma and the West Indies star all-rounder picked Virat.
He added: “I think Kohli, any bowler would want to dismiss Kohli, the best player across all three formats,” he said.
