Virat Kohli Fight with LSG: In the 43rd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), RCB set a target of 126 runs for LSG. However, LSG had a poor start and lost five wickets within eight overs. During the match, an incident caught the attention of fans when Virat Kohli, the captain of RCB, took a catch to dismiss Krunal Pandya. After taking the catch, Kohli gestured to the fans in the Lucknow stadium to keep quiet by putting a finger on his mouth. This gesture went viral and drew comparisons to a similar gesture made by Gautam Gambhir, the mentor of LSG, in a previous match against RCB.

What Forced Virat to Fight with LSG Players?
The previous match between RCB and LSG took place at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on April 10. LSG, led by KL Rahul, won the match in a thrilling manner. After the victory, Gautam Gambhir, observing the RCB fans, asked them to keep quiet by putting a finger on his mouth, and this gesture also went viral. Now, in a recent match between the two teams, Virat Kohli repeated the same gesture, which has drawn attention from fans. Some fans are comparing it to Newton’s third law of motion, stating that “every action has an equal and opposite reaction” featuring Virat Kohli.
In the match, LSG’s bowlers, particularly spinners Amit Mishra and Ravi Bishnoi, delivered a dominant performance and restricted RCB to a below-par total of 126/9. RCB chose to bat first but struggled against spinners Krunal Pandya and Ravi Bishnoi during the powerplay, unable to score the big hits they had been known for this season. RCB eventually won the match by 18 runs and gained some positions in the TATA IPL points table.
