India skipper Virat Kohli and comeback man Gautam Gambhir seem to have moved on from their bitter Indian Premier League spat as the Delhi duo was seen sharing a few light moments on the eve of the second cricket Test against New Zealand.

Gambhir, who joined the team last evening as a replacement for injured opener Lokesh Rahul, stood alongside Wriddhiman Saha and Ravichandran Ashwin while a padded up Kohli quickly joined them.

The fans witnessed ugly spat between Kohli and Gambhir during the 2013 season during a match in Bangalore.

On Thursday, they were seen in a lengthy discussion peppered with some laughs. Drafted into the Test side after more than two years, Gambhir was later seen chatting with team India coach Anil Kumble even as he did not bats long in the nets.

Gambhir's stint at the two-hour net session also included giving some catching practice at the start to Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan.
