Kolkata, April 13: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players were involved in a "scuffle" following their IPL 2015 match at Eden Gardens on Saturday (April 11), according to a media report.
On Monday, "Times Now" English news channel reported that a KKR player held an RCB cricketer by his collar after the conclusion of the match, which was won by the visitors. Chris Gayle (96 off 56) starred in RCB's 3-wicket victory over the defending champions.
"Players and officials attended a late night hearing with the match referee (after the incident)," the TV channel claimed on Monday evening. It said the hearing concluded as late as 1.30 AM.
During the 2013 IPL edition, KKR and RCB captains Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli had an ugly on-field spat.
RCB are set to play Sunrisers Hyderabad at Bengaluru's M Chinnaswamy Stadium tonight. This is their first home game of IPL 8.
