Guatam Gambhir's angry rant after winning the game against RCB captured on TV

The Royal Challengers Bangalore have not been in good bowling form this season as they let yet another winnable game slip from their hands on Monday.

Having loss the toss and been asked to bat in front of their home ground, Kohli’s side managed to reach a decent total of 185 in the first innings thanks to half centuries from KL Rahul and Virat Kohli up the order.

Umesh Yadav felt the wrath of the home side as he was hit for 56 runs in his 4 overs in the first innings.

The visitors did not have a great start to the chase losing the in-form Robin Uthappa for just a run in the first over. Putting Chris Lynn up the order for some quick runs also failed for the Knight Riders who were reduced to 66/3 in 9 overs after losing Gautam Gambhir for just 37 runs.

Manish Padey soon followed his skipper leaving KKR requiring 113 runs of the final 9 overs with just 6 wickets in hand.

But if the current season of the IPL has taught us anything, it is that the game is not over until the last ball is bowled and the home side found that out in the hard way.

A mind-blowing innings from Yusuf Pathan who smashed 60 runs of just 29 scoring 45 runs of his last 14 balls pushing his skipper to the edge of the seat.

The stakes were pretty high in the game and just one glance at the KKR skipper showed how much a victory meant to him in this game.

Suryakumar Yadav, who played a decent cameo for the side slogged an important boundary of left arm spinner Tabraiz Shamsi’s last over taking the required score down to 2 runs of 8 balls.

This sent Gambhir into an adrenaline rush where he was seen jumping out of the chair and kicking it before shoving his towel away.

Piyush Chawla, his team-mate who was beside him made sure that the skipper calmed down as Gambhir blabbered something before taking his seat.

Here is the incident during the game:

Surely, Gambhir was extra-charged after the lbw decision that he was given was seemed to be un-fair. But more importantly, the rivalry between the Delhi boys Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir was on show.

Previously, the duo had their altercations on the field and Gambhir’s reaction to the victory over Kohli’s side shows that the former Indian opener has still not made peace with the in-form Kohli.

KKR are currently in the 2nd place after this victory with 8 games to be played in the season.
