The face-off between Virat Kohli and Naveen-ul-Haq during the Cricket World Cup 2023 match between India and Afghanistan ended with a hug, putting an end to their previous on-field spat during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Kohli even requested the crowd in New Delhi to stop taunting Naveen-ul-Haq. Gautam Gambhir, who was present in the commentary box during the incident, criticized the crowd for their behavior and mentioned that players should not be trolled or made fun of on social media. Rohit Sharma played a pivotal role in India’s victory, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s record with his seventh World Cup century. He achieved his century off just 63 balls, making it the fastest by an Indian in a World Cup. Rohit’s knock included 16 fours and five sixes and he also became the leading six-hitter across all formats, surpassing Chris Gayle’s record. The opening partnership of 156 between Rohit and Ishan Kishan set the tone for India’s victory. India chased down Afghanistan’s target of 273 in just 35 overs, with Virat Kohli finishing the match unbeaten on 55. Afghanistan had posted a total of 272-8 after electing to bat.
