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 on Thursday night.
Kohli also shrugged off the on-field spat, saying “what’s done on the field is done”.
