Bizarre: Virat Kohli asks fan to leave India over minor reason

‘I don’t think you should live in India, go and live somewhere else’: Virat Kohli lashes out at fan

Swashbuckling Indian batsman Virat Kohli became subject to a fresh controversy on Tuesday when he suggested that Indian cricket fans who like foreign batsmen more than the domestic ones should go and live in foreign countries.

The video, available on Kohli's recently-launched app, shows him expressing his disapproval after a fan called him an "over-rated batsman" and that he prefers watching English and Australian batsmen instead. Finally, it seems he has a backer in Dr. Subramanian Swamy, who feels there is nothing wrong with Kohli's statement as we live in a country where everyone has the right to Freedom of Speech. I don't think you should live in our country and like other things.

While adding that he didn't mind any sort of dislike towards him, the Indian skipper felt that one should get his priorities sorted before posting such comments.


Meanwhile, Kohli is now the No 1 batsman in Tests and ODIs and hence it did not go down well with. The 30-year-old was reading the messages criticising him and calling Indian cricketers overrated while there were some messages where users highly admired Australian and English batsmen over their Indian counterparts.

After creating social media upheaval with his comments, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli on Thursday made an attempt at lightening the mood saying he respects 'freedom of choice'. The BCCI's revenue will fall, and consequently the players' fees. I loved watching Sachin, Viru (Virender Sehwag), Sourav (Ganguly), VVS (Laxman), Rahul (Dravid) bat but also loved Mark Waugh, Brian Lara and so many others. He should walk the talk and support the BCCI's partners rather than focusing on private endorsements.

Last month, Kohli became the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 one-day worldwide runs in a match against West Indies.
