[Watch] Fans chant “Kohli, Kohli” near LSG’s dugout after SRH denied a no-ball in IPL 2023

In one of the most bizarre incidents, SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) fans chanted “Kohli, Kohli” near the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG)’s dugout during their game at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Saturday, May 13.

This came after Hyderabad were denied a no-ball off Avesh Khan’s bowling that went above the stumps during the penultimate over of SRH’s innings.

According to commentators, the crowd also threw nuts and bolts at the Lucknow team’s dugout to make the situation worse.

Reminder, never ever mess with KOHLI! Feel for GG morning lost the elections afternoon fan shouting kohli kohli behind his dug out.

For the uninitiated, LSG have been at the heart of controversies this IPL following the infamous verbal spat between former Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli and Lucknow’s Afghanistan-based player Naveen-ul-Haq as well as team mentor Gautam Gambhir. The trio were fined for breaching the IPL code of conduct.

That incident took place after Bangalore beat Lucknow in a low-scoring thriller by 18 runs on May 1 at the Ekana Cricket Stadium. The social media exchange, however, continued from Naveen during RCB’s game against MI, which they lost despite posting 199.

Here are the most notable Instagram stories indirectly exchanged between Naveen and Kohli:

Kohli also shared a cryptic post as his Instagram story.

Now the fans in Hyderabad tried to take a dig at LSG on behalf of Kohli, who enjoys a huge fanbase in the country, by throwing inappropriate items in their dugout.
