The main reason behind the scuffle seems to be Kohli's gesture towards the RCB logo after taking Krunal Pandya's catch, indirectly taunting the crowd. Earlier in the same season, Gambhir had made a similar gesture towards the crowd by keeping his fingers on his lips. It appears that Kohli was attempting to give a fitting reply to LSG and Gambhir.
After winning the toss, RCB decided to bat first in order to score big and put pressure on LSG batsmen later in the second innings. However, things did not go as planned, and RCB was bowled out for 126 runs in 20 overs. Chasing a small target, LSG lost four quick wickets and came under pressure.
Gautam Gambhir is a BJP MP. So what he did on the field shouldn't be a surprise. But that doesn't give him the right to abuse Virat Kohli.This behaviour is not acceptable. pic.twitter.com/S9govYjT9M— Rohini Anand💕 (@miss_roh08) May 1, 2023
The main scuffle started in the 17th over of the LSG innings when King Kohli got into a heated argument with Amit Mishra and Navin-ul-Haq. After Bangalore won the match, Navin and Kohli were angry when they bumped into each other while shaking hands. The scuffle escalated when Gambhir and Kohli came face to face, and there was a long argument with aggressive body language. A video of the altercation is getting viral on social media.

In response to the incident, the BCCI has imposed strict fines on the players involved. The board has always been strict on player behavior and has taken measures to ensure that players conduct themselves in a professional manner both on and off the field. The fines imposed on the players should serve as a reminder to everyone that such behavior will not be tolerated.
while heated arguments and scuffles may be a part of the game, players must remember that they are role models and ambassadors for the sport. They must conduct themselves in a professional manner and respect their opponents and the game. The BCCI's swift action in this matter serves as a reminder to all players that such behavior will not be tolerated.
