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

Virat Kohli told a cricket fan to leave India if he likes English and Australian cricketers more than Indian players, the Times of India reported. Kohli was responding to a "mean" comment by a fan who felt the Indian skipper is an over-rated batsman.

The 30-year-old was reading out tweets when he came across one which described Kohli, now the top ranked test batsman, as "overrated" and that Australian and English batsmen were more pleasing to watch than "these Indians".

A fuming Kohli, while reacting to it, said "I don't think you should live in India". He is also the only player in the country who rests from nearly every other tournament the team participates in.

To that, Virat responded by saying: "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then... Get your priorities right", Kohli said.

He had gone on to clarify his stance: "I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all".

Since Kohli's video went viral, fans have expressed their staunch views over the 30-year-old's statements calling him arrogant and obnoxious.

Kohli, for his part, broke his silence on the controversy on Thursday and wrote, "I guess trolling isn't for me guys, I'll stick to getting trolled!"

But then Virat Kohli had defended himself and added that he is all for freedom of choice.

Social media users had been quick to call out Kohli over his remarks - and many referred to past instances in which he had praised sportspeople of other nationalities.

These words by Indian skipper Virat Kohli has set social media abuzz.

In a section where he reacted to unflattering tweets sent to him, Kohli is seen replying to someone who said that they prefer English and Australian batsmen over him.

The cricketing fraternity also criticized the skipper for making such freaky comments.

After beating West Indies across all formats in the ongoing tour, Virat Kohli and co are now enjoying a short four-day break from their ongoing series with just a final T20I remaining.

"Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season".
