Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) faced a resounding defeat at the hands of Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Eliminator match of the ongoing Indian Premier League. Following the loss, the Super Giants' pacer, Naveen-Ul-Haq, found himself at the receiving end of merciless trolling with mangoes.

The trolling spree was initiated by ardent fans of Virat Kohli, who wasted no time in taking a jibe at Naveen-Ul-Haq. However, it was Swiggy Instamart that further fueled the mockery by posting a tweet that read, "Someone from Bangalore has just ordered 10kg mangoes." This humorous tweet caught the attention of IPL 2023 enthusiasts, who responded with a flurry of amusing replies.

Amidst the banter, one witty reply speculated that the mangoes must have been ordered by an individual in London. This reference alludes to the fact that both Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli departed Mumbai on May 24, with Kohli currently in London for the upcoming World Test Championship final against Australia, scheduled to commence on June 7.

Zomato was one of the first to join the trend. It shared a photo, in which a plate full of mangoes can be seen in front of a television screen showing Naveen-ul-Haq batting. “Not so sweet mangoes," it wrote on the pic.

However, the posts have since been removed by the players. Nevertheless, the screenshot of their Instagram posts quickly spread among Twitter users, intensifying the banter between the players.
