Afghanistan fast-bowler Naveen-ul-Haq seems to have developed a liking for posting cryptic posts on social media and creating controversies. It all began after his infamous on-field fight with Virat Kohli during the last edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The match between Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore in May ended in a controversial manner with Naveen-ul-Haq and Kohli being at the center of the incident. They were involved in a verbal spat that began during the game and turned really ugly after the match ended.

During the game, Kohli had seemingly shown his shoe to Naveen-ul-Haq in a disrespectful manner. Later when the players were shaking each other’s hands after the game, the Afghanistan star decided to snub the RCB star. Soon, Kohli came at loggerheads with LSG mentor Gautam Gambhir as well before players from both sides separated the two.
Naveen ul-Haq’s Instagram post causes uproar:
Following the incident on the field, both Kohli and Naveen-ul-Haq had seemingly taken shots at each other by posting cryptic stories on their respective Instagram handles. And while Kohli has pretty much moved on from the incident, the same cannot be said about Naveen. The LSG bowler has once again left the fans surprised with an Instagram story.
Two months after that infamous incident in Lucknow, Naveen posted a cryptic video showcasing a fable of a tiger arguing with a donkey. The quote towards the end of the video reads: “The worst waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who does not care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. There are people who no matter how much evidence we present to them, are not in the capacity to understand, and others are blinded by ego, hatred, and resentment, and all they want is to be right even if they are not.”

The post comes just a few days after Naveen had claimed that the fight was started by Kohli. Pinning the blame on Kohli for the incident, Naveen had said that it was the former India skipper who had caught his hands “forcefully” after the match.
“He shouldn’t have said all those things during the match and after it. I didn’t started the fight. After the match, when we were shaking hands, Virat Kohli started the fight,” Naveen told BBC Pashto in an interview last month.
