The five times champion Mumbai Indians was not in a very strong position in the IPL 2023 but it made a good comeback in the later half and luck also favored the team as Royal Challengers Bangalore lost its must-win match against Gujarat Titans which made MI’s entry in the play-offs possible.
Yesterday, MI defeated Lucknow Super Giants in the second qualifier and now it will face Gujarat Titans on 26 May; the winner of this match will face Chennai Super Kings in the finals.
After MI defeated LSG, three MI cricketers Sandeep Warrier, Kumar Kartikeya and Vishnu Vinod tried to troll LSG pacer Naveen-ul-Haq by making a post on Instagram in which these three are seen acting as wise monkeys (one can’t see bad, one can’t hear bad and one can’t say bad) and they have kept three mangoes in the middle of the table. The post has been captioned as, “Sweet season of mangoes”.

If you remember, Naveen-ul-Haq made Insgtagram posts during the match between MI and RCB which was lost by RCB as he was trying to take a jibe at Virat Kohli with whom he had a scuffle during an IPL match.
It didn’t take much time for fans to understand that these three MI cricketers were taking a jibe at Naveen-ul-Haq but as the image went viral, it was deleted, however many had taken screenshots by that time.
Naveen-ul-Haq bowled pretty well in the match against MI as he took 4 wickets but MI bowler Akash Madhwal outclassed him by taking a fifer and gave only 5 runs in his 3.3 overs.
LSG lost this match by a big margin of 81 runs as the whole team got bundled out for 101 runs in 16.3 overs while chasing the target of 183 runs.
