‘Virat Kohli’s ‘leave India’ remark disappointing, unacceptable’

New Delhi, Nov 9: Virat Kohli is always in the news, whether he is making runs or posting something on the social media, most of the times it is of the positive variety, this time though it is slightly different.
The India captain on Wednesday, through a video on social media when he was promoting his official application, asked a fan to “leave India”. This after the fan had commented negatively about Kohli and other Indian batsmen. The fan wrote, “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 to the message Kohli had some stinging words of his own, “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? 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.”
Kohli’s words have not down well and he has been criticized by certain sections of the media. Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra too has weighed in on the debate and said that what Kohli has said is unacceptable.
