In IPL 2023, after the match between Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 1, there was a fierce fight on the field. Virat Kohli had a heated argument with Afghanistan fast bowler Naveen-ul-Haq. After this Lucknow’s mentor Gautam Gambhir also jumped into the controversy. This matter had escalated to a great extent. BCCI also had to take action regarding this and fine was imposed on all three. About four weeks are about to pass for that matter, but still this matter of Naveen and Virat is not stopping. In every match in Lucknow, whenever Naveen bowled or fielded on the boundary line, the crowd started teasing him by chanting Kohli…Kohli. On this, the reaction of the Afghan pacer has now come to the fore.
RCB were knocked out of the IPL 2023 playoffs but Lucknow faced Mumbai in the eliminator. In this match, Naveen-ul-Haq definitely took four wickets but he could not escape the hooting of the public. Dhoni had this ground in Chepauk on Wednesday, Rohit Sharma’s team was playing but slogans were being raised of Kohli…Kohli. This is because Naveen had messed with Virat. His four wickets also could not help the team in this match and his team lost the match by 81 runs and got eliminated from the tournament. After this match, when he was talking to the media, he was asked a question on the slogans of Kohli…Kohli, so his answer was quite interesting.
Naveen said this
When Naveen-ul-Haq was asked about Kohli-Kohli sloganeering to tease him on the field, he said, “I like it when anyone on the field shouts my name or any other player’s name.” . This gives me the motivation to play well for my team. Well I don’t pay attention to the noise coming from outside or anything. I just focus on my game. I am not affected by people sitting in the stands raising slogans or saying anything. He further added that everyone should back the players of their team. Be it mentors, coaches, players or whoever, I will be there for each and every teammate on the field and that’s what I expect the most.
What was the whole matter?
Talking about the whole issue, Naveen Ul Haq came out to bat in that match against RCB and RCB were in the driving seat and close to winning the match. At the same time Virat and Siraj started making some comments. This sledging on the field increased the controversy and that controversy was drawn during the handshake. During this, Naveen once again argued with Virat and shook his hand. After this the matter worsened. Virat again started talking to Kyle Myers. Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir came and called Myers back. From here the dispute worsened on which Virat commented something, then Gautam Gambhir also came to confront him. In this case clearly no one can tell who said what happened, just this much was visible in the visuals. You can also see.
