‘Band karo, main hath jod ke guzarish karta hoon’ – Twitter reacts as MI youngsters mock Naveen-ul-Haq following IPL 2023 Eliminator victory, delete tweet later

LSG lost the Eliminator match against MI by 81 runs.

Naveen ul Haq

The picture posted by Mumbai Indians players Sandeep Warrier, Vishnu Vinod, and Kumar Kartikeya caused quite a stir on social media after their victory over Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2023 Eliminator. The photo featured a plate of mangoes placed on a table, accompanied by the caption, “Sweet season of mangoes.” Although the post was later removed, it quickly went viral, garnering attention from fans and adding fuel to the ongoing banter between the players.

The significance of this post can be traced back to an incident involving Naveen-ul-Haq, the pacer for Lucknow Super Giants, during an earlier IPL match. Naveen had used the phrase “sweet mangoes” in a caption on his Instagram story after the dismissal of Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman Virat Kohli. This seemingly innocuous comment sparked a heated exchange of words between Naveen and Kohli during the match, as well as a confrontation with Super Giants mentor Gautam Gambhir.

Naveen-ul-Haq further added to the controversy by sharing a laughing meme video after Royal Challengers Bangalore’s exit from the tournament. This drew attention from fans and intensified the trolling directed at him. Therefore, when the Mumbai Indians players posted the picture of mangoes with the caption “Sweet season of mangoes,” it was seen as a direct taunt aimed at Naveen and the Super Giants.

The post reflected the camaraderie and confidence of the Mumbai Indians players, who had just secured a dominant victory in the crucial Eliminator match. It showcased their ability to engage in light-hearted banter while enjoying their success. The fact that the players removed the post shortly afterwards indicates that they may have realized the potential backlash it could generate, but by then, the image had already gone viral.

Overall, the picture posted by the Mumbai Indians players was a clever and playful way of taking a dig at Naveen-ul-Haq, given his previous use of the phrase “sweet mangoes.” It further fueled the banter and rivalry between the teams and entertained fans, who eagerly joined in the conversation on social media platforms.
