Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), led by Virat Kohli, suffered a nine-wicket loss to the Kolkata Knight Riders in their 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Monday, September 20 in Abu Dhabi. While RCB fans were stunned by the humiliating loss, it was RCB race leader Kyle Jamieson who made headlines for ‘flirting’ with RCB massage therapist Navnita Gautam.
When the RCB score was 53/4, the cameraman walked over to the canoe where Jamieson was sitting, all padded as he had to enter at no. 8. When the camera was on Jamieson, he was seen smiling as he looked at Navnita Gautam, who was sitting in the shelter.
As soon as the camera caught Jamieson smiling flirtatiously, the footage went viral and fans were curious about Navnita.
