“Naveen only reacts when someone bugs him unnecessarily. I have seen him bowling often, he gets hammered as well, but he never tried to pick up fights with anyone. I can’t recall if I have ever seen him this much aggressive”, Afridi said.

Afridi also mentioned that aggression is a natural trait among fast bowlers, and every team has players who display such tendencies.
