The two Indian cricket legends appear to be at odds at the moment without even meeting. The weekend between RCB and DC at Chinnaswamy wasn’t that close on the pitch. But the actions of DC cricket manager Sourav Ganguly and former RCB captain Virat Kohli have sparked social media with several viral videos.
It all started when the two dodged a handshake after the match, and they later pointed out that the two were ignored at different times during the game. Virat Kohli fuelled the controversy by defeating Sourav Ganguly on Monday,17 April.
The former BCCI chairman’s latest decision only confirms that Indian cricket stars are not even talking to each other after what happened some 14 months ago when Kohli was India’s captain. It all started when Virat Kohli suddenly announced the T20 World Championship. As the big event approached, he would return the T20I captaincy to India.

However, it was very clear that he wanted to lead India in ODIs and tests. Although, the coaches reportedly thought there should only be one captain in white ball cricket and also removed Kohli as ODI captain. Things went wrong when Sourav Ganguly claimed that personally and even the selectors had spoken to Kohli not to step down as captain of the T20i.

Then Virat Kohli explained that no one from BCCI had come forward. He also quickly resigned as Test captain and all of this controversy came when he had massive problems with his bat.
Ahead of the Asian Cup, the man took a well-deserved break and is now fully fit again in all formats of the game. Things are also looking up for IPL 2023, but some are sure to disappoint Indian cricket fans with the latest developments between Kohli and Ganguly on social media.
