Ganguly's Gesture of Respect RCB vs DC Redemption a Year Later

In a notable turn of events during the IPL 2023 match between Royal Challengers Bengaluru (then Bangalore) and Delhi Capitals at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, an incident unfolded between Virat Kohli and Sourav Ganguly, hinting at underlying tensions. This clash, marked by a noticeable 'no-handshake' moment and a subsequent social media rift, highlighted a strained relationship between the two cricketing stalwarts.

The origins of this rift can be traced back to 2021 when Virat Kohli was relieved of his T20I captaincy and later removed from ODI captaincy, leading to public spats between Kohli and the BCCI administration, headed by Sourav Ganguly at the time. Kohli's subsequent resignation from Test captaincy in January 2022 further fueled speculation about discord between the two cricketing icons.

During IPL 2023, tensions came to a head when Kohli threw a cold glare at Ganguly, who held a pivotal role with the Delhi Capitals team. Moreover, Ganguly chose to bypass the customary post-match handshake with Kohli, signaling palpable animosity between the two.

However, a symbolic reconciliation occurred during the reverse fixture at Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium, where Kohli and Ganguly exchanged a handshake, seemingly attempting to mend fences.

Fast forward to the IPL 2024 encounter between RCB and DC at the same venue, a significant shift was witnessed in their dynamic. Ganguly, in a gesture of utmost respect, removed his cap and exchanged pleasantries with Kohli after RCB's victory. Kohli reciprocated with gratitude and a smile, marking a symbolic truce between the two cricketing figures.

RCB's win not only underscored their resurgence in the IPL 2024 season but also elevated their position in the points table, keeping their playoff hopes alive. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals, missing key player Rishabh Pant due to suspension, faced a setback, slipping in the rankings.

The incident served as a poignant reminder of the complexities and human dynamics within the cricketing fraternity, transcending mere sporting rivalries and reflecting the ethos of sportsmanship and mutual respect.
