New Delhi: Whenever we talk about Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli, the cricket fans are automatocally reminded of the ugly fight between the two star cricketers during one of the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches.
After Kolkata Knight Riders claimed Kohli's wicket, tempers flared between the two skippers as Kohli heard something while he was walking back and returned to give a piece of his mouth to his compatriot. Things got uglier when Gambhir retaliated and players from both the team had to intervene to make sure it didn't get exaggerated.
While the incident is often talked about, what many don't remember is Gambhir's kind gesture where he gave away his Man of the Match award to Kohli, who had hit a century in the same match.
In 2009, India chased down a formidable 315-run target at Eden Gardens set by Sri Lanka. Gambhir and Kohli were involved in a brilliant 224-run stand for the third-wicket partnership.
Watch Gambhir giving away his award here:
While Gambhir remained unbeaten on 150 runs, Kohli contributed with a stupendous 107-run knock. It was Kohli's maiden ton in international cricket.
