Mumbai: Virat Kohli found himself embroiled in controversy over his “I don’t think you should live in India” response to an enthusiast, who called the India captain overrated while expressing his admiration for English and Australian batsmen.”Over-rated batsman and personally I see nothing special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians,” read the cricket enthusiast’s tweet. Far from being pleased with the fan’s observation, Kohli responded, “Okay, I don’t think you should live in India then… you should go and live somewhere else, no?.
But the story didn’t end there. Yesterday Kohli got angry on KL Rahul and asked him to leave India and settle down in France after he ordered French Fries at a restaurant where they were both having a snack.
KL Rahul is a big fan of the French Fries and asked Kohli also to eat from his plate. This left Kohli red-faced and he asked Rahul to immediately leave the restaurant as he thought that Rahul is anti-Indian and he should not be present in India. Kohli also called up the selectors and told them that Players who love the country and don’t praise foreign things or foreign people only should be allowed to represent India in the cricket team.
Last, when we heard, Ravi Shastri has been asked to drink IMFL and not the complete foreign brand of liquor as Kohli tries to implement the India first initiative.
