Virat Kohli has a message for Indians: If you like foreign cricketers, leave the country

November 8, 2018

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.

The drama unfolded during the video recording of the launch of his mobile phone application.

“He [Virat] is an overrated batsman,” the fan wrote. “Nothing seems special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians.”

This statement did not sit well with the energetic Indian cricketer who told the fan to “leave the country”.

“I don’t think you should live in India. Go and live somewhere else. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries?” he replied.

The Indian cricketer said that he didn’t mind the fan not liking him but he didn’t like it when people live in one country and like things from other countries.

    Indians have a tendency to like everything foreign. So what is so new about it? I would have said go ahead keep doing it, nobody can stop it. Why should it affect him, he is an authority in his own right, a better authority than that person.
