Held at the Ikana Stadium in Lucknow on Monday (May 1). Lucknow Super Giants Vs. The 43rd match of IPL 2023 between Royal Challengers Bangalore will be remembered for many things. The biggest reason for this is the tussle between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir. Then there’s the second reason, which fans will always remember. In fact, Lucknow spinner Ravi Bishnoi showed Virat Kohli the way to the tent during this match. Virat came forward to Bishnoi’s ball and tried to hit the shot. However, the ball did not hit the bat. The wicket-keeper then sent him to the tent after knocking him out.
Umpire’s hand and Ravi Bishnoi’s cheek
Now when bowler Ravi Bishnoi dismissed Virat Kohli, it was natural to cheer. However, Bishnoi was seen writhing in pain. Meanwhile, the video and photos are going viral on social media. When Bishnoi approached the umpires to take his cap after celebrating this wicket, the umpires’ attention was elsewhere. So when the punch came, his hand hit Ravi Bishnoi on the cheek.
At this point it felt as if some umpires had slapped Bishnoi. However, this happened accidentally. The umpire then apologized to Bishnoi for this. This video is going viral.
