Who is Naveen Ul Haq? Due to which Virat and Gambhir had a fight, how did it come from Afghanistan to IPL?
43rd Match of Indian Premier League 2023 Lucknow Super Giants Vs. Royal Challengers Bangalore played. Bangalore team won this match by 18 runs. Lucknow team player Naveen-ul-Haq is constantly in the news after this match. After his spat with Virat Kohli, his photos and videos are going viral on social media. The BCCI has also fined the player 50 percent of the match fee for violating the IPL code of conduct. Meanwhile, this fast bowler from Afghanistan has been in the news more than his bowling in the IPL due to his controversy with Virat Kohli. So let’s find out who Naveen Ul Haq is and how he made it to the IPL…
India was a favorite team since childhood
Naveen-ul-Haq, born in 1999 in Kabul, spent many years of his childhood in Pakistan. His family used to live in Pakistan due to war situation in Afghanistan. At that time there was no Afghanistan alliance. Also, India was Naveen’s favorite team. His favorite players were Irfan Pathan, S Sreesanth and Zaheer Khan.
Always used to fight with my brother
Naveen used to play tape ball cricket with his brothers since childhood. He was a wicket-keeper batsman. However, the two brothers always quarreled. They used to play against each other. When Naveen saw the leather ball for the first time, he decided to become a bowler and pursue a career in cricket. With his brother’s help, his father also agreed and sent Naveen to a cricket academy.
Naveen was quite average in the beginning, but with time he became a very good bowler. After returning from Pakistan, he was playing for the Afghanistan under-16 team at the age of 11. When he turned 15, he became part of the country’s under-19 team. He made his debut for his country’s senior team at the age of 17 and never looked back.
How did you reach the IPL?
With 14 wickets in 7 ODIs for Afghanistan and an economy rate of just 5.79, Naveen looks set to play for an IPL franchise in a short time. He has so far taken 34 wickets in 27 international T20 matches. Also, runs have been spent at an economy rate of 8.11. He has been doing well in T20 leagues around the world. That is why he was also included in the IPL auction. However, none of the teams other than Lucknow showed faith in him and brought him into the team at the base price i.e. 50 lakhs. He has taken 7 wickets in 4 matches so far in IPL. Also, runs have been spent at an economy rate of just 6.12. However, he has been in the limelight due to his controversy with Virat Kohli.
Old relationship with controversy
Naveen has been embroiled in controversy before. Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi and Naveen had an argument in the sixth match of the Sri Lanka Premier League. Candy Tuskers defeated Galle Gladiators by 25 runs in the match. During the match, Naveen was seen using abusive language against Gladiators bowler Mohammad Amir. The Tuskers’ senior players, including Munaf Patel, tried to stop the young Afghanistan bowler from fighting, but Naveen was ready to pounce. After the match, when the players of both the teams were shaking hands, Afridi and Naveen came face to face. Afridi smiled and asked Naveen, what was he saying to Aamir? Responding at that time, Naveen gave an insulting reply. After that, Afridi was also red with anger.
How did you meet Virat?
In the Lucknow vs Bangalore match, Virat Kohli came running and said something to Naveen. Then Navin also said something. After that there was an argument between the two. When the two players were shaking hands after the match, Virat and Navin-ul-Haq clashed. Virat is a much senior player than Naveen, but Naveen never respected his senior players. He was therefore fined 50 percent of his match fee. (who is naveen ul haq who had verbal exchange with virat kohli in rcb vs lsg ipl 2023 know here)
