In the match between Lucknow and Bengaluru, the whole world saw first Virat Kohli and Naveen Ul Haq and then Kohli and Gautam Gambhir. Virat also had an argument with the Lucknow player and then with the team coach. Everyone is hoping that at least an international cricketer should not behave like this. Punitive action was also taken against Virat, Gambhir and Naveen Ul Haq in this case.
In both these on-field incidents, it seemed at one point that the spat between Virat Kohli and Naveen Ul Haq as well as Virat and Gautam Gambhir would turn into a brawl. But there was one player on the field who kept things from getting out of hand. Which convinced Virat Kohli. Not only this, he handled the situation calmly even when Virat lashed out at him.
The player who did not let yesterday’s row get worse is Amit Mishra. Who is known as Mishra ji in cricket world. Amit Mishra is considered to be close to both Virat and Gambhir. Even when there was an argument between Kohli and Naveen Ul Haq, Mishra was explaining to Virat.
Even when Virat and Gambhir had an argument after the match, it was Mishra who didn’t let things get worse. Mishra pulls Virat back and pacifies the matter. Amit Mishra came forward both times throughout this debate and did not let things get out of hand.
When Virat Kohli and Gaumat Gambhir had a similar spat in 2013 too, Rajat Bhatia stopped things from escalating. Like Amit Mishra, Rajat also hails from Delhi. In this case, Virat Kohli and coach Gautam Gambhir were fined 100 percent of the match fee. While Naveen ul Haq was fined 50 percent.
