LSG vs RCB: Virat Kohli, Gautam Gambhir, and Naveen-ul-Haq heavily fined for breaching IPL Code of Conduct

The post-match scenes of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will continue to make headlines for a while now. The verbal fight between Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli that took place during LSG vs RCB will be the talking point for some time. Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) slapped the two individuals with a hefty fine for their unruly behaviour during the game.

Both Kohli and Gambhir who admitted to the Level 2 offence under Article 2.21 of the IPL Code of Conduct were fined 100% of their match fees for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct. Meanwhile, Lucknow fast bowler Naveen-ul-Haq who was also involved in an argument with Virat Kohli was also fined 50% of his match fee.

While it has been over a few hours not since the on-field spat between Naveen-ul-Haq and Virat Kohli took place, the fire is still burning and it has been carried off the field now. Both individuals have put up stories on Instagram about “truth”, “perspective”, and “who deserves what”. While Kohli shared, “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth”, Naveen-ul-Haq wrote, “You get what you deserve, that’s how it should be and that’s how it goes”.

It will be interesting to see what happens if the two teams somehow meet in the future course of the tournament. Hopefully, this verbal spat is not taken personally and the two sides leave it behind.
