World Cup 2023: There was a dispute between Virat Kohli and Naveen Ul Haq during IPL. Due to this controversy, both the players were in the news a lot.
World Cup 2023: Taking forward its campaign in the World Cup, Team India is going to face Afghanistan today. In this match with Afghanistan, the eyes of the fans of both the countries are on Virat Kohli and fast bowler Naveen Ul Haq. The reason for this is also very special. This will be the first time after the controversy in the Indian Premier League that Virat Kohli and Naveen Ul Haq are going to face each other.
In fact, in the recent season of IPL, there was a lot of debate between the players of both the teams in the match played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants. The biggest controversy took place between Virat Kohli and Naveen Ul Haq. Naveen Ul Haq was so upset that he did not even shake hands with Virat Kohli. After this, Gautam Gambhir also joined the fight on the boundary line and had an altercation with Virat Kohli.
Virat Kohli also gave a befitting reply to Naveen Ul Haq and Gautam Gambhir. The war between these two players continued on social media even after the end of IPL. Many times in the last 5 months, Naveen Ul Haq targeted Virat Kohli without naming him. Gautam Gambhir also supported Naveen Ul Haq on most of the occasions. There was not much mention of this matter on social media from Virat Kohli.
Before the World Cup, India and Afghanistan also clashed in the Asia Cup. Since Naveen Ul Haq was not a part of the Asia Cup team, he could not compete with Virat Kohli. After the World Cup, Naveen Ul Haq also announced his retirement from ODI. In such a situation, there is a high possibility that both of them are going to face each other for the last time in this format.
This match between India and Afghanistan is going to be held in Delhi. Delhi is Virat Kohli’s home ground and he is expected to get huge support here. Virat Kohli will leave no stone unturned to capitalize on this opportunity.
