The Indian skipper Virat Kohli has recently involved in a national controversy when he told the fans to leave the country if they can’t support the Indian cricketers.

In a recent video, when Kohli was reading some social media reactions and giving the replies on those, he read a Twitter message where a fan wrote about Kohli, “Over-rated batsman and personally I see nothing special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians.”

In reply, Kohli said in that video, “Okay, I don’t think you should live in India then…you should go and live somewhere else, no? Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don’t mind you not liking me but I don’t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right.”

Soon, Kohli was brutally trolled and criticised for his comment as some fans have felt unhappy on this comment.

Later, Kohli posted on his official Twitter account, “I guess trolling isn’t for me guys, I’ll stick to getting trolled! I spoke about how ‘these Indians’ was mentioned in the comment and that’s all. I’m all for freedom of choice. Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all.”
