RCB vs KKR - 'Moment Of The Day': Virat Kohli Hugs Gautam Gambhir Mid-Match, Internet Can't Keep Calm. Watch | Cricket News

The Royal Challengers Bengaluru vs Kolkata Knight Riders clash during the IPL 2024 had two men, who are known to share a piece of history, on the other side: Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir. The last time the duo faced each other in the IPL 2023, it created one of the enduring images in Indian cricket. Last year, Gambhir was associated with Lucknow Super Giants and had a heated on-field argument with Virat Kohli after a match against RCB. Both received heavy fines for that incident. It was not the first altercation between the two on the field.

However, what happened during the match between RCB and KKR on Friday was quite the opposite. Gautam Gambhir approached Virat Kohli and hugged the RCB star during a strategic timeout.

Before the match, the official broadcasters of IPL shared an old video of Gambhir, where he was seen making some interesting observations on RCB.

“One team I wanted to beat every time, probably even in my dreams, was RCB. Probably the second most talked-about team, the flamboyant team with the owner and probably the squad – Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers. Honestly said not I won everything but still thought they won everything. That kind of attitude. I can’t stand that. Probably the three best wins KKR ever had were against RCB,” Gautam Gambhir says in the video.

“One thing I want in my cricketing career is to take the field and beat RCB.”

Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) all-rounder Andre Russell praised Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and said they have “great match winners” in their squad.

During the pre-match press conference, Russell said that KKR will not take RCB for granted as they can take away any match. The Caribbean all-rounder added that the Bengaluru-based franchise has a good bowling unit.

“My mentality is very clear, especially when I come from a win and also get some runs. (But) I’m not going to take anything for granted. RCB are a great team and they have some great match winners, who can take the game out of their hands . from us. They have a good bowling unit as well. So I hope that if I face five, six, seven, eight balls in the backend, I make the best use of it. But I would like to see the other batters to come the backend. go party tomorrow and at least take some time in between,” Russell told ESPNcricinfo.
