A few days, after the massive on-field spat, took place between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir, an anonymous coder used creativity to compile an online game based on a verbal altercation. The clip of the game has been making rounds on social media and has garnered a lot of attention from fans.
For the uninitiated, following the match between Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Royal Challengers Bangalore, tempers flared as Kohli and Gambhir engaged in a heated exchange of words. While the incident attracted massive attention for all wrong reasons, in a hilarious turn of events, one coder decided to build a game based on the fight between the former India teammates.

The clip begins with a walkthrough of the match as the characters of Kohli and Gambhir are designed along with their respective RCB and LSG jerseys. Creativity peaks as the coder brings the two stalwarts of the game on the field as the characters can be seen engaging in a physical fight that involves the use of bats.
