After Virat Kohli and Naveen ul haq’s rivalry ended during the latest India-Afghanistan game on Wednesday, former cricketer Gautam Gambhir responded.
Virat Kohli, a seasoned Indian batsman, and Naveen-ul-Haq, an Afghan bowler, hugged warmly after their respective countries’ World Cup match on Wednesday. The current hostilities were stoked by a heated discussion between Kohli and ul Haq during an IPL 2023 encounter. The Afghan pacer also made fun of the Indian run machine in his subsequent Instagram tales.
The India vs. Afghanistan match had cricket fans waiting to watch how this rivalry played out, but the manner the players greeted one another won over many of them. The match was made more exciting by the presence of former India batsman Gautam Gambhir in the commentary box. Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli got into a furious argument over Naveen-ul-Haq during the fight between the two players.
When the feud between Kohli and the Afghan pacer ended, Gambhir responded, “You fight on the field, not off the field. Every player has the right to stand up for his or her team, demand respect, and pursue victory. It makes no difference what nation you are from or how talented a player you are. The good news is that we could tell the battle had finished when we saw Virat Kohli and Naveen Ul Haq throughout the overs.
What Naveen ul Haq did after they made up with Kohli:
After the game, Naveen ul Haq described Kohli as a “nice guy” and a “good cricketer” in an interview with PTI. “Crowd will chant for their home cricketers,” he asserted, and that is exactly what happened.
It is his (Kohli’s) home ground. He is a nice guy, a good player and we shook hands.
There was nothing outside the ground; it (what happened) always happened in the ground. People achieve success. They require that material for their supporters. He stated that “we are done with that” today, and I concurred. The cricketer from Afghanistan responded, “We shook hands and hugged.
Only nine ODI matches have been played by Naveen ul Haq, who also intends to stop playing this format after the World Cup in 2023.
