It’s been barely 15 days since the Virat Kohli vs Sourav Ganguly feud was put to rest as the two former India captains shook handshake and put the ‘no handshake’ saga behind them. But fans seem to have dug up a third chapter in their rivalry by going after a tweet posted by the former BCCI president. On a day when three centuries were scored on the final double-header of IPL 2023 – Cameron Green, Kohli and Shubman Gill – Ganguly put out a tweet applauding the ‘standard’ of the IPL.
“What talent this country produces… Shubman Gill… Wow… two stunning knocks in two halves. IPL… what standards in the tournament,” he tweeted. Ganguly’s tweet was particularly directed at Green and Gill’s twin centuries since they are the future and the ‘talent’ he was referring to. However, fans found a loophole in the tweet and felt something was missing – the mention of Kohli, who scored a record 7th IPL century and surpassed the Universe Boss Chris Gayle to the landmark.
