‘Give Respect, Take Respect’: Naveen-ul-Haq hits back at Shahid Afridi’s ‘Don’t indulge in abusive talk’ comment


The on-field spat between Afghanistan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq and Pakistan cricketers Mohammad Amir and Shahid Afridi during the Lanka Premier League (LPL) game between Kandy Tuskers and Galle Gladiators has now reached social media and still isn’t ending.

The pace bowler has hit out at Afridi’s ‘Don’t indulge in abusive talk’ remark on tweet, saying that he is always ready to take advice from seniors like him, but he demanded respect in return.

Playing for Kandy Tuskers in the LPL, Naveen replied saying, “Always ready to take advice and give respect,Cricket is a gentleman’s game but if someone says you all are under our feet and will stay their then he is not only talking about me but also talking abt my ppl.  #give #respect #take #respect.”

The incident took place when Amir was batting and Naveen chirped a few words at him. The chatter kept going on after the game as well and got Afridi involved in it. The teammates from both the sides separated the two.

Afridi then tried to intervene and resolve it but it got more heated as when the routine post-match greetings were taking place Afridi looked visbly angry when Naveen’s turn came. Afridi looked irritated and advised him to relax but it didn’t have any impact on him.
