Kohli asks cricket fan to leave India, faces criticism

File image of India skipper 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. "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians", Kohli reads. Swamy took to Twitter and his post read, "What is wrong if Virat Kohli tells a questioner (who tells him that he enjoys watching foreign cricketers more that Indian cricketers) that he should migrate overseas?"

"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".

It seems to have worked Kohli who responded by saying, "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then... you should go and live somewhere else, no? Get your priorities right".

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

Migrant caravan enters Mexico City to shelter at stadium
Migrants briefly blocked traffic on the busy highway to beseech passing truckers for a ride, but none offered one. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said Monday that thousands of his countrymen have returned to Honduras.

In the meantime, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has been irked by Virat's outrageous comments as per reports in the Times of India (TOI). Shane Warne for me has been the most exciting spinner to watch, but one felt the most thrill when Anil (Kumble) was bowling. "Yes, I can like and endorse global brands because I am getting money for it".

This statement did not sit well with the energetic Indian cricketer who told the fan to "leave the country". The BCCI's revenue will fall, and consequently the players' fees.
