match in Kolkata on Saturday.
Both of them found a moment of connection, discussing the nuances of cricketing rivalry and camaraderie. With mutual respect as their guiding principle, they explored the essence of sportsmanship and the responsibilities of leadership.

After a heated and ugly confrontation in the IPL last year, Kohli and Gambhir, this season, buried the hatchet and were seen hugging and sharing smiles together after the RCB-KKR clash in Bengaluru.

Kohli revealed later that fans have been disappointed with his new cool and composed avatar, pointing out they have been denied the on-field ‘masala’ associated with the two-time World Cup-winning India star.
Their conversation, echoing across the hallowed stadium, captivated fans and players alike, transcending the boundaries of competition. As the sun set on the historic ground, their exchange left an indelible mark, epitomising the spirit of cricket and the bond it fosters among its protagonists.

Kohli is currently the leading run scorer in the 17th edition of the cricketing extravaganza, with 361 runs under his belt in 7 games. The 35-year-old has already hit a couple of half-centuries and a ton, and his average is over 72.20.
However, RCB have once again had a dismal season, sitting at the bottom of the table with six defeats and a solitary win in their 7 matches so far.
