Controversies • In 2011, during his maiden trip to Australia, Kohli gave the Sydney fans the middle finger when they taunted him while he was fielding the boundary during the second Test. Virat Kohli Showing Middle finger • In the sixth season of IPL in 2013, a fight broke out between Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli during a game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knightriders. Instead of heading back after exiting the vehicle, Kohli said something that enraged Gambhir. The two began verbally attacking one another before Rajat Bhatia stepped in to stop them. Virat Kohli Fighting in Match • The BCCI forbade Indian players from staying with their wives or girlfriends while competing in the 2015 World Cup in Australia. However, rumors claim that Kohli was lodging in the same hotel as Anushka Sharma, his girlfriend. • In 2016, during a T20 World Cup practice, Kohli yelled at a journalist because he believed the individual had written a story on the starlet Anushka Sharma for the National Daily. But when Kohli realized it was the wrong journalist later, he quickly apologized. • Even though Anil Kumble was appointed the head coach of the Indian cricket team in June 2016, numerous rumors were floating about at the beginning of 2017 suggesting animosity between Anil and Virat Kohli. Anil opted to stop coaching, and on June 21, 2017, he resigned from his position as the Indian cricket team coach after feeling extremely offended when the BCCI released an advertisement for the position of men’s Indian cricket team coach ahead of the Champions Trophy 2017. • He was fined 10% of his match fee on April 17, 2023, for violating Article 2.2 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Code of Conduct during a match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). • He was assessed a 100% match fee sanction for an altercation with Gautam Gambhir on May 1, 2023. At Lucknow’s Ekana stadium, the fight broke out after an IPL game between the Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore. According to reports, a disagreement between Kohli and Naveen-ul-Haq of LSG during the interval between the 16th and 17th served as the starting point for the fight. Gambhir and Naveen each received fines equal to 100% of their respective match fees.
