Several fans were worried due to the heated altercation between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) star batsman Virat Kohli and LSG mentor and former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir during the high-voltage encounter of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Monday night.
However, there was also a moment of love during the high-voltage encounter between the two teams that won many hearts. After the completion of the match, RCB speedster Mohammed Siraj walked up to LSG skipper KL Rahul and asked him about his injury. Siraj also gave Rahul a hug.
The picture of the moment has reportedly gone viral over various social media platforms. A picture has been shared by a fan on Twitter which has garnered around 21,000 likes. Several fans flooded the comment box with their opinions. Some of them also praised the humanity and love gesture shown by Siraj.
Reacting to the post, a fan wrote, “One act of kindness and then there’s the horrible fight after that.”
“Hope, this gets noticed among all dramatic footage!!,” another user tweeted.
Notably, Rahul picked up the injury near the ropes while trying to save a boundary during the match. The LSG captain had to be taken off the field following the injury. However, he had to come out to bat as the team was in trouble. The right-handed batsman did not look comfortable during his stay at the crease.
