Is another Gautam Gambhir vs Virat Kohli clash on the cards? As Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) take on the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 on Friday, a blockbuster duel will unfold at the M Chinnaswamy stadium. The last time Gambhir and Kohli were in the same stadium, the IPL witnessed one of its most intense on-field battles. Former KKR and RCB star Varun Aaron expects Gambhir’s presence in the Knight Riders dugout to fire up Kohli as the match takes place.

In a chat with Star Sports ahead of the Knight Riders vs Royal Challengers match Aaron said that he is eagerly looking forward to the match-up outside the boundary rope, hinting at the Kohli vs Gambhir duel.

“I don’t want to stir anything but I’m looking forward to the match-up outside the boundary line. Gautam Gambhir is going to be there right beside the Bengaluru dug-out, I don’t know what’s going to happen there. We know Virat likes to have fire in his belly and if he just looks at the Kolkata dug-out, he’s going to get fired up,” said Aaron.

Gambhir and Kohli famously clashed during an RCB vs Lucknow Super Giants match in IPL 2023. Kohli initially locked horns with LSG’s Naveen-ul-Haq before Gambhir went into the ground and had a verbal war with the former.

On the chaotic episode, Gambhir had said last year: “It is not about Naveen-ul-Haq. I would have defended any player, that is my job, that is how I am. Why should I not defend my players just because someone has a broadcaster working for him, left right and centre, someone who has more social media presence doesn’t have any right to walk over someone.”

While all is well between Kohli and Naveen since the episode, the equation between Gambhir and the RCB star will become more clear on Friday night.
