IPL 2023: Virat Kohli, Gautam Gambhir fined 100% match fees for breaching code of conduct

Virat Kohli, Gautam Gambhir and Naveen-ul-Haq have been fined for breaching the IPL code of conduct during and after the match between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Monday. While Kohli and Gambhir have been fined a 100% match fee, Naveen faced a 50% fine for being involved in a heated exchange after the match.

Perhaps, the drama had started during the match itself with Kohli and Naveen having a go at each other and things escalated post-match. It all started in the 17th over of the innings when Virat Kohli seemed unhappy about Naveen over something. He was constantly seen animated with the umpire and Amit Mishra who was batting at the other end.

Kohli also had something to say to the Afghanistan cricketer who also had a staring war with the former. While shaking hands, the two players exchanged words and this is when Gautam Gambhir got involved.

The LSG mentor was then involved in a heated exchange with Kohli and the two had to be separated by the players of both LSG and RCB camps. The scenes were ugly in the middle and for the same reason, action has been taken against them. IPL released official statements for the fines related to all three players.
