The controversial Afghanistan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq has been in the limelight for a while after his face-off with Virat Kohli, and now, while playing against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Eliminator, he managed to bag few quick wickets with his deceptive deliveries.
The right-armer was brought into the attack after the conclusion of third over and straightway left an impact dismissing Rohit Sharma on his second delivery. Next up, he was tasked to bowl the 11th over when Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green were getting set on the crease.
And without breaking a sweat, Naveen sent both of them back to the pavilion, first getting SKY with slower delivery as he was caught at long-off and then, another slower one knocked Green's poles out of ground.
This was just the fourth wicket that fell for MI with the other one going to Yash Thakur after he found Ishan Kishan's edge to the keeper.
Both these teams will be looking to get a victory as the loser will be eliminated whereas the winner will clash against Gujarat Titans (GT) in Qualifier 2.
After the conclusion of 11th over, Mumbai were 105 for four with Tilak Varma and Tim David being the newcomers to the crease.
