Indian skipper Virat Kohli is known for his aggressive attitude on the field as well as off the field. And on several occasions, this blunt behavior has costed him dearly. And now the same has happened as he went through severe criticism for asking a fan to leave India.

 

What is the incident?

The right-hand batsman was having a session where he answered hate messages sent to him. One person had stated that he enjoys watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indian batsmen. Speaking about Virat, the fan said that Kohli is an over-rated batsman and personally, he sees nothing special in his batting.

The Indian skipper was certainly taken aback by this comment and replied the fan in a stern manager. Virat said that he doesn’t think that the person should live in India and he asked him to go and live somewhere else.

He asked the fan why is he living in our country and loving other countries? However, Kohli also made it clear that he doesn’t mind the fan not liking him but he doesn’t think that a person should live in our country and like other things. Virat further asked the person to get his priorities right.

This response by Kohli didn’t go well with the fans and they backlashed the Indian batsman.
