A month has passed since the incident and Gambhir has stated that there is nothing personal between them, and all the heat stays on the ground.

“My relationship with MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli is the same. If there is an argument between us, it stays only on the field, not off field. There’s nothing personal. They want to win as much as I do,” Gautam Gambhir told News 18.

In addition to this, Gambhir also stated that he made a point of not taking the fights and arguments that he gets involved in off the field. He also stated that a lot of people asked him for clarification. He opined that an argument between two people does not need any clarification.

“Look, I have had many fights on cricket fields. It’s not like I never fought. I have always ensured to let those fights and arguments stay at the cricket field only. The argument was between two people and it should stay within the cricket field and not outside it. A lot of people said many things. A lot of people demanded an interview for TRPs like they asked me to clarify. The thing that has happened between two people doesn’t need to be clarified,” Gambhir said.
