Cryptic Instagram story
Following the elimination of Royal Challengers Bangalore from the IPL 2023 playoffs race, Lucknow Super Giants pacer Naveen-ul-Haq posted a cryptic Instagram story in which a TV presenter can be seen laughing uncontrollably. Even though he didn’t say much, fans were quick to notice that the Afghanistan international was making a dig at Virat Kohli and the RCB, who later called out Naveen and condemned the act on Twitter.
The right-arm fast bowler shared a video of an African anchor laughing on live TV. The story appeared to be a dig at the RCB following their loss.

Fans Boil over Afghan bowler
I have been supporting @naveenulhaq66 against what Virat Kholi did on the ground but "naveen ul haq" is stretching it now. It’s enough brother you should stop now. I think GG has been using you against Virat. Don’t play in to these toxic games. Focus on your further. I see this… pic.twitter.com/x5KcCJxP23

It's good that we are not having RCB vs LSG in playoff.
Naveen ul Haq doesn't even deserve to stand on the same ground as Virat.
What a filthy character.
