Amidst the furore created by the incident that took place in the 48th league of Indian Premier League, a post uploaded by the official twitter account of Mumbai Indians irked the fans of Indian captain Kohli who are fuming at the online handle. The post was written in a way of confirming that Surya Kumar Yadav starred at the captain of the national captain. The post, unusually gained a wide reach comparing to the other posts the Mumbai Indians twitter handle.
It all started when a video clipping of Surya Kumar yadav and Virat Kohli starring at each other surfaced in Internet. During the end of 13th over in the match between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Surya tried to hit Dale Steyn at the extra cover but the ball was fielded by Kohli. Since, it was the end of the over, Kohli walked towards the crease with the ball and Surya stood there with a deadpan expression on his face staring at Kohli. Both the players starred at each other before Surya moved on with the bat.

However, it has been discovered that an earlier incident that took place during the end of the 10th over caused the rift. When Virat fielded the ball played by Yadav, the Indian captain threw it towards Mumbai Indian with a frustrated body language. He even said something while throwing the ball at the 30 year old.
