The social media rift between Virat Kohli and Saurav Ganguly is an extension of the on-field collision

There were two incidents between Virat and Saurav in the Delhi-Bengaluru match. The first incident occurred in the 18th over of Delhi’s innings. Chasing 175 against RCB, Delhi was under pressure. Aman Khan was playing well. He got out with 18 runs off 10 balls. Virat caught that. After that he looked strangely at the Delhi dugout. The team’s ‘Director of Cricket’ Saurav is sitting there.

At that time Saurav did not give any expression in return, but at the end of the match it was understood that he also did not want to talk to Virat. At the end of the match, the cricketers and support staff of both teams were shaking hands with each other. Right in front of Saurav was Delhi coach Ricky Ponting. While he was shaking hands with Virat, Surav shook hands with the cricketer standing behind Virat on top of Ponting. As a result, the two did not meet.
