Naveen-ul-Haq, the Afghan seamer, has been performing exceptionally well in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 season for Lucknow Super Giants. He has taken a significant number of wickets and has consistently deceived opposing batters, enabling his team to claim crucial wickets at pivotal moments of the match.
Although Lucknow’s next game is still four days away, Naveen-ul-Haq has been enjoying some downtime and savoring the taste of mangoes in his hotel room.
Recently, he posted a picture of himself on social media, where he was watching Match 54 of the ongoing tournament between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on his hotel room’s television.
In the photograph, Naveen-ul-Haq can be seen enjoying some mangoes placed on a plate in front of him while watching the game.
Naveen-ul-Haq shared the photograph on his Instagram story and captioned it ‘Sweet Mangoes.’ It is worth mentioning that he has been in excellent form during the ongoing season, having picked up seven wickets in five matches, with an average of 14 and an economy rate of over six.

He put up an impressive performance against Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore, where he recorded identical figures of 3/30 in four overs against both teams.
Despite his impressive performances with the ball, Naveen-ul-Haq was left out of Lucknow Super Giants’ last match against Gujarat Titans. The team needed Quinton de Kock to open the batting following KL Rahul’s injury.
Besides his remarkable bowling displays, Naveen-ul-Haq has also been in the news for his on-field behavior. During Match 43 of the season, he got into an altercation with the star batter Virat Kohli, which led to tempers flaring on the field. After the game, LSG mentor Gautam Gambhir even had a go at Kohli due to the incident.
