Swashbuckling Indian batsman Virat Kohli became subject to a fresh controversy on Tuesday when he suggested that Indian cricket fans who like foreign batsmen more than the domestic ones should go and live in foreign countries. "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians", Virat Kohli read out the fans tweet. For the Indian skipper, the response to this was to say that those who have choices like this should not be living in India. I don't mind you not liking me, but I don't think you should live in our country and like other things. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? Get your priorities sorted, he responded.
Kohli lashed out at a fan while promoting his newly-launched app..
Kohli has claimed that him endorsing foreign brands is not the same as people preferring foreign cricketers because he is paid for it. Are you getting money to like Australian and English cricketers? No.
Kohli launched his mobile app on his 30th birthday on November 5. He is the No 1 batsman in ODI and T20I cricket apart from recently becoming the fastest to 10,000 ODI runs and becoming the first Indian to slam three consecutive tons in ODI cricket. He was in red-hot form and finished the five-match series as the top run-getter with 453 runs at an average of 151.00.
Kolhli was recently praised by West Indies legend Brian Lara and former South Africa captain Graeme Smith for his insatiable hunger for success.
