Bangalore:

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. (Also see: The tiff in pics)

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.
