During the 2023 World Cup clash between India and Afghanistan in Delhi, a heartwarming moment unfolded as Virat Kohli and Naveen-ul-Haq put to rest their on-field feud from the IPL 2023 season. The two cricket stars shared an emotional hug, exchanged words, and sported warm smiles, signifying that their differences had been amicably resolved.

The rift between Kohli and Naveen had originated during the 16th edition of the IPL, creating waves of controversy. However, their reconciliation was witnessed on the grand stage of the ICC World Cup in India, five months later, when Afghanistan faced India in Delhi. This display of unity seemed to have definitively buried the hatchet between them.

Their symbolic gesture occurred in the 26th over of the second innings at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, where Kohli and Naveen engaged in a heartfelt side hug. Their friendly exchange of words, accompanied by smiles, further confirmed that animosities had been set aside. Beyond the match, they continued to share light-hearted moments, shedding light on their newfound camaraderie.

Speaking about their conversation, Naveen-ul-Haq shared, “He is a nice guy, a good player, and we shook hands. It’s always in the ground; it was nothing outside the ground. People make it big. They need that stuff for their followers. He said we are done with that, and I said yes, we are done with it. We shook hands and hugged.

Kohli’s sportsmanship extended to the crowd, as he urged the Delhi spectators not to taunt Naveen. This gesture was also echoed by fans in Dharamsala during Afghanistan’s match against Bangladesh when they chanted Kohli, Kohli.

The initial dispute between Kohli and Naveen had flared up during their clash in the IPL between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants. It began with Kohli’s gestures toward Naveen during the match and escalated after the game, with both players exchanging heated words. The situation reached its pinnacle when Gautam Gambhir also became involved in the altercation.
