Lucknow Super Giants’ IPL 2023 journey ended after a 81-run loss to five-time champions Mumbai Indians in the Eliminator match in Chennai on Wednesday. Chasing a competitive 183-run target, LSG fell short by a big margin and none of their batter came to the party. The only silver lining for LSG was the performance of their pacer Naveen-ul-Haq who took a four-wicket haul. After taking the wickets of the likes of Rohit Sharma and Camron Green, Naveen could be seen doing the shut-out-the-noise celebration, which went viral on social media. Even the great Sunil Gavaskar reacted on the celebration.
“Brilliant, terrific delivery. This delivery was 105 while the previous one was 133. It was so deceptive. And then he celebrates but I have not understood this celebration,” Sunil Gavaskar said on-air on Star Sports after Naveen took the wicket of Cameroon Green.
Naveen has been in news recently after his altercation with former RCB captain Virat Kohli. After his celebration.
“He has had issues with the crowd. You should celebrate by chucking your ears. This is the time he has got a wicket. He has got to listen to the applause. When somebody scores a hundred also, don’t chuck your ears. Listen to the applause, chuck your hand behind the ears and say ‘hello, now can I hear you?’. That’s how the celebration should be. That’s old me saying this, by the way,” Gavaskar was quoted as saying by India Today.
