Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir go back a long way, the two players who both played for Delhi share a tumultuous history and it was almost like the world went back to 2013 when Kohli and Gambhir first faced each other in IPL, but no, it actually happened, the two legends found themselves embroiled in another heated confrontation which was the biggest talking point on Monday after Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 18 points.

Both Virat and Gambhir were fined 100% of their match fees, while Naveen-ul-Haq, who was also involved in a heated war of words with Kohli on several occasions, was also punished by the BCCI.

However, former Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar believes that such kind of incidents should not happen again and again, which is why he believes that harsh penalties such as suspension for a few games should be given to the culprits.

Speaking to Star Sports, Gavaskar highlighted the Harbhajan Singh slamming door incident, for which the Indian spinner issued a fresh apology to Sreesanth on Tuesday, urging Kohli and Gambhir to come out in peace.

“Well, I saw the visuals only a while ago, I didn’t see the game live yesterday. These things never look good. What is a commission of 100% match commission What is 100% match commission If it is Kohli who is maybe on Rs 17 crore for RCB meaning Rs 17 crore for 16 possible matches including including semi-finals and finals. So you’re talking about one crore of rupees. Is he going to be fined Rs 1 crore and more? Well, that’s a very, very severe fine” , said Gavaskar.

“I don’t know what Gambhir’s situation is, they should make sure it doesn’t happen again. You hope it doesn’t happen again because it’s such a severe fine, such a severe punishment. You want to play hard, play competitively,” he added.

The legendary hitter added: “So my point, do something that will make sure these things don’t happen again. If you need to know, as happened with Harbhajan and Sreesanth 10 years ago, you may have to ask them to step down for a few games. Make sure you do something that ensures these things don’t happen and also something that will hurt the team. It’s stiff.”
