Leave India If You Prefer Cricketers From Other Countries: Virat Kohli

Known for his aggressive on-field attitude, Indian skipper Virat Kohli has now caught the Twitterati's ire for asserting those who love foreign cricketers more than Indian ones should leave the country.

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.

In a video available on his newly released app, Kohli was reading out messages from his fans.

"Virat needs to understand that if the fans go away to other countries, then no Puma etc. will want to sign him for ₹100 crores".

"Okay, I don't think you should live in India then... you should go and live somewhere else, no? Get your priorities right", Kohli said.


Kohli's rant went viral on social media.

Kohli was in the eye of a storm during the launch of his mobile application when he told a fan that he should not be living in India if he can not like Indian cricketers.

Having faced the wrath of social media users for a couple of days after publicly lashing out at a fan, India skipper Virat Kohli tried to tone down the issue somewhat on Thursday, saying he is "all for freedom of choice". In fact, many have found Kohli's statement hypocritical considering he once called South Africa batsman Herschelle Gibbs his favourite cricketer.

Team India had also requested the BCCI to compensate the players who would be missing the cash-rich league, which is expected to start in the first week of April. "He is a great player and it's time to try and be a great human being", the official remarked. Not long ago, Kohli became the fastest to 10,000 runs in ODI cricket and also became the first Indian to slam three consecutive centuries in ODI cricket, which is a testament of the surreal form he is in.
