KOLKATA: India skipper Virat Kohli+ and comeback man Gautam Gambhir + seem to have moved on from their bitter IPL spat as the Delhi duo was seen sharing a few light moments on the eve of the second Test+ against New Zealand.
Gambhir, who joined the team last evening as a replacement for injured opener Lokesh Rahul, stood alongside Wriddhiman Saha and Ravichandran Ashwin while a padded up Kohli quickly joined them.
The fans witnessed ugly spat between Kohli and Gambhir during the 2013 season during a match in Bangalore.
Today they were seen in a lengthy discussion peppered with some laughs. Drafted into the Test+ side after more than two years, Gambhir was later seen chatting with team India coach Anil Kumble even as he did not bat long in the nets.
The 34-year-old’s turn to bat at the nets came last along with R Ashiwn, who did not bowl to recover from the corn – thickened skin – on his middle finger of the bowling arm.
