During a conversation with teammate Avesh Khan, the bowler mentioned Gambhir advised him to maintain his natural playing style and not to make any changes. According to Naveen-ul-Haq, it turned out as an excellent piece of advice.

During the interaction with Naveen-ul-Haq, Avesh Khan asked him about his favourite sledge on the cricket field, anticipating that he would talk about his spat with Kohli.

“I don’t sledge someone upfront, It’s not my habit. There’s an incident from a first-class game. I was on the non-striker’s end and the batter on strike got sledged. The fielder on the silly point was newly married. He said, ‘It’s the last wicket, let’s finish this quickly, I need to go home and finish some work, I just got married yesterday. This was a funny incident that happened,” Naveen-ul-Haq said when asked about his favourite sledge on the field.
