Gambhir-Kohli involved in ugly on-field spatBangalore: There was no love lost between the rival captains as Kolkata Knight Riders` Gautam Gambhir and Royal Challengers Bangalore`s Virat Kohli were involved in an ugly on-field spat after the latter was dismissed in the 10th over of the innings.

It was an incident that took everyone by surprise as Gambhir and Kohli have been not only played together for the country but also for their state side Delhi, North Zone and same office side ONGC.

The incident happened off the first delivery of the 10th over bowled by Lakshmipathy Balaji. Kohli, who had hit Pradeep Sangwan for two sixes, went for a wild slash but was caught in the sweeper cover region.

As Gambhir and other players walked towards cover region to celebrate the dismissal, Kohli instead of trudging back to the pavilion walked towards short extra cover and apparently made a remark.

Suddenly, Gambhir was seen walking angrily towards his junior India teammate. However it was another Delhi lad Rajat Bhatia, who got in between them and tried to calm Gambhir down.

Both Gambhir and Kohli sought to downplay the incident at the presentation ceremony.

"Some things happen in the heat of the moment...Its nothing", Gambhir said when asked whether he would have a cup of tea with his Royal Challengers Bangalore counterpart tonight.

Kohli also shrugged off the on-field spat, saying "what's done on the field is done".
