Virat Kohli has shared a cryptic post on his Instagram Stories after his verbal altercation with Lucknow Super Giants mentor “Gautam Gambhir” and Afghan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq. The match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants was filled with drama as Kohli got into a war of words with Naveen during Game 17, and had to be separated from Gambhir after they came face to face with face after RCB’s 18-point victory at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow on Monday.
Kohli, Gautam and Naveen have all been heavily fined following their antics on the pitch, and now the former RCB skipper has offered his thoughts on the whole fiasco but posting a cryptic message on social networks.

The 34-year-old was earlier seen celebrating Krunal Pandya’s dismissal with his usual aggression on the pitch, although he gave Lucknow fans a kiss, making a gesture not to remain silent which was supposed to to be a sneaky dig at Gambhir who had made a figure on the lips gesture to RCB fans after LSG’s win earlier this season.
