Kohli Reacts After Social Media Backlash

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

Virat Kohli was on Wednesday embroiled in a controversy when a fan termed him an "over-rated batsman" comparing him to England and Australia cricketers.

In a video that has gone viral for all the wrong reasons and available on his newly released app, Kohli was reading tweets and Instagram messages before coming across an user, who said the Indian mainstay has nothing special in his batting.

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. "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians", Kohli reads out aloud in the video.

Recently, the reports surfaced the Indian skipper Virat Kohli wants the BCCI to give rest to Indian fast bowlers in IPL 2019, who would play the vital role in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019.

He responded to the tweet by taking a dig at the fan, saying: "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then... you should go and live somewhere else no".

Team India also suggested that BCCI should compensate the players who would miss the T20 extravagant for the World Cup.

It has also been learnt that no request has been made by team India about resting the batsmen. If he checks his contract, he may find that he may have violated his contract with this statement. "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians".

Kohli has been rested for India's ongoing T20I series against West Indies, which they have already sealed 2-0 with one game to play.
