Shahid Afridi’s statement
Shahid Afridi said, “Naveen-ul-Haq reacts only when someone provokes him for no reason. I have seen him bowling. He does not start fights himself. I have never seen him so aggressive. Every team has some attacking players. We have too and it’s normal. Some fast bowlers are of that nature.”
Naveen also clashed with Afridi
Naveen ul Haq clashed with Mohammad Amir during the Lankan Premier League. Amir had hit his ball for a six. So the new one was inflamed. He did not even shake hands with the players after the match.
