While two played some exceptional shots during their stay at the crease, it was  Naveen-ul Haq  who hogged the limelight for the Afghan side. The much-hyped and talked about rivalry from the IPL 2023 was put back in front of the fans as the Afghan pacer took the field to bat in the 49th over of the inning.

As soon as Naveen stepped in, he was welcomed with loud cheers of “Kohli…Kohli”. During his eight-ball stay in the middle, the entire stadium echoed with Kohli chants. It is to be noted that the Afghan pacer also played his first shot towards Kohli at the fine leg.

However, it wasn’t just the cheers, the former Indian kipper was also captured giving some fiery reaction during this moment. The rivalry between the player from the Asian countries dates back to May 1, 2023. The two were involved in a heated exchange during Royal Challengers Bangalore’s match against Lucknow Super Giants at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow.
