After RCB was eliminated from the competition, Naveen even shared a meme video on Instagram that featured people laughing. Three members of the team—Kumar Kartikeya, Vishnu Vinod, and Sandeep Warrier—took a photo on the dining room table with mangoes after MI defeated LSG last night in the Eliminator.

Mumbai Indians appeared to be in good shape to reach 200 or more runs in their first innings, but Naveen's four-wicket haul limited them to 182/8. The Lucknow Super Giants responded by being all out for 101 and losing by 81 runs.


An earlier brawl between the LSG and RCB during an IPL match caught the attention of cricket fans all over the country. Naveen-ul-Haq, a well-known character in cricket, got into a furious argument with Virat Kohli, the RCB's star player. The two players got into it during a heated exchange on the pitch, which resulted in a verbal altercation that shocked the audience.

Naveen-ul-Haq, who is well known for his strong participation on social media, used Instagram to convey his feelings after the subsequent defeats endured by RCB. The gifted cricketer quietly referenced the team's poor performance by using the opportunity to relate tales of sweet mangoes. This unexpected action by Naveen-ul-Haq sparked rumours and heightened the already tense environment surrounding the competition.
