MUMBAI, India (AP) — India cricket star Virat Kohli and former international teammate Gautam Gambhir were fined by the Indian Premier League on Tuesday following their heated altercation after a match.

The incident took place on the field after Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Lucknow Super Giants, for whom the now-retired Gambhir is a team mentor.

Kohli and Gambhir were fined 100% of their fees for the match that took place on Monday.

Both admitted to breaching the IPL code of conduct related to bringing the game into disrepute.

Kohli and Gambhir were teammates on India’s national team for a while across all formats. Gambhir retired in 2018 and became a politician.

Bangalore successfully defended 126-9 against Lucknow to leave the teams tied on points.
