In IPL 2023, Virat Kohli was in the news for wrong reasons. In a match played between Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Kohli got involved in a heated argument with LSG quick Naveen-Ul-Haq. As the match got over, LSG mentor Gautam Gambhir joined and was seen to be moving aggressively towards Kohli. Both had a heated argument that went on for a few minutes. The news garnered special attention as it turned out to be the biggest controversy of IPL 2023.

After the incident, Naveen-Ul-Haq and Gautam Gambhir were booed several times by Kohli's fans. But during the last year's World Cup match played between India and Afghanistan in Delhi, Virat Kohli and Naveen-Ul-Haq hugged each other to bring this episode to an end.

Similarly, during a match between Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Kolkata Knight Riders played earlier this season in Bengaluru, Gambhir came and shared a laugh with Kohli. Both the legends hugged each other to bring an end to this saga as well.
