It may be recalled that Virat Kohli was involved in an ugly verbal showdown with former Indian cricketer Gambhir and Afghanistan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq during RCB's IPL 2023 clash against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) on May 1. 

Recently, Kohli reminisced about his bond with Gambhir at an event, sharing some amusing anecdotes to delight the audience. However, the atmosphere reached a fever pitch when Kohli affectionately referred to Gambhir as ‘Bhai’ during his speech.

"Yeh na log bahut disappointed ho gaye hai mere behaviour se. Naveen (Ul Haq) ke saath maine jhappi daal di, uss din Gauti (Gautam Gambhir) bhai ne aake mere ko jhappi daal di, toh matlab tumhara masala khatam ho gaya toh ab. Abey bacche thodi na hai yaar," Kohli can be heard saying in the viral clip.

The crowd erupted into cheers, overwhelmed by the camaraderie between the two players. The clip from the event quickly went viral, capturing the hearts of fans everywhere.

Kohli also recounted a humorous incident where Gambhir attempted to confuse the umpire and revealed Gambhir's strategy regarding DRS reviews.

Kohli, who missed the Test series against England due to the birth of his second child, has set IPL 2024 on fire with his batting prowess. The Indian batting icon has amassed 316 runs in five matches played for RCB so far. He became the leading run-scorer in this edition of the T20 league recently after his sensational century (113 runs) in RCB's last match against Rajasthan Royals.

In the upcoming IPL 2024 Match 25, the Mumbai Indians (MI) will face off against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) on Thursday. MI enters the match with a boost of confidence following their first win of the season against the Delhi Capitals, whereas RCB aims to bounce back after a loss to the Rajasthan Royals in their previous encounter. With 32 meetings between them in the tournament thus far, MI holds the upper hand with 18 victories, while RCB has clinched victory in 13 matches.
