Virat Kohli may have violated his central contract with 'leave India' statement

Virat Kohli sparks controversy after he asks fan to 'leave' India ‘I don’t think you should live in India, go and live somewhere else’: Virat Kohli lashes out at fan
Sidney Guerrero | 08 November, 2018, 15:56

Virat Kohli, captain of the Indian cricket team, told a person - on video - not to live in India if he or she prefers foreign cricketers to Indian ones.

The drama unfolded during the video recording of the launch of his mobile phone application. He also said he enjoyed watching batsmen from English and Australian teams rather than the current Indian team. The controversial comments from the Indian cricket captain came while he was reading tweets and Instagram messages, and simultaneously responding to them in a video.

"Virat needs to understand that if the fans go away to other countries, then no Puma etc. will want to sign him for ₹100 crores". The user says that it's preferable to watch Australian and English batsmen. Some even went on to remind Kohli of his statement during the U19 Cricket World Cup in 2008, wherein he said that his favourite cricketer was former South African opener Herschelle Gibbs.

Interestingly, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane did not make any request to rest the batsmen.

"Over-rated batsman and personally I see nothing special in his batting".

When Sturridge's right-footed shot on the turn deflected for a corner, the tide turned as the hosts turned the screw. They could still win club football's biggest prize. "We were not surprised by Red Star's tactics".

Kohli scored 453 runs in the recently concluded one day worldwide series against West Indies.

Kohli's rant went viral on social media.

The 30-year-old cricketer has been hailed as one of the greatest batsmen in the world and is often touted as India's cricket megastar since national legend Sachin Tendulkar retired in 2013.

While adding that he didn't mind any sort of dislike towards him, the Indian skipper felt that one should get his priorities sorted before posting such comments.
