Virat Kohli sparks controversy after he asks fan to 'leave' India

08 November 2018

In the video available on his newly released app, Kohli reads out tweets and Instagram messages offering his opinions on them. Kohli was responding to a "mean" comment by a fan who felt the Indian skipper is an over-rated batsman.

India captain Virat Kohli wants to leave no stones unturned when it comes to the team's preparations in the lead up to Cricket World Cup 2019 even if the decisions involved are going to take the sheen out of Indian Premier League (IPL).

Interestingly, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane did not make any request to rest the batsmen.

Somehow, the senior BJP leader's statement did not go down well with fans who trolled Swamy.

Kohli last played in the five-match ODI series against West Indies where he scored three centuries and became the fastest cricketer to 10000 ODI runs.

Cross Counter claims historic British triumph in Australia's Melbourne Cup
Cross Counter's historic victory was described by his British trainer, Charlie Appleby, as "everybody's dream". However, in typical Melbourne fashion, the sun came out and the track condition improved just before the race.

The fan mentioned that he doesn't find anything special in Kohli and that he likes to watch the Australian and English batsmen ply their trade. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries?

"He [Virat] is an overrated batsman", the fan wrote.

The video went viral and has prompted a torrent of criticism against Kohli on social media.

In response, Kohli said, "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then. you should go and live somewhere else no". But I don't mind you not liking me but I don't think you should live in our country and like other things.

The 30-year-old cricketer has been hailed as one of the greatest batsmen in the world and is often touted as India's cricket megastar since national legend Sachin Tendulkar retired in 2013. He added that the fan should get his "priorities straight".
