    I think calling all Indian batsmen as overrated is what didn't go well with him and being the captain of Indian team, he just couldn't resist himself to it. I mean it is quite absurd if someone calls all the batsmen of your team as overrated though I feel it is okay if someone prefers batters of other countries over them.

    Well he took that as a personal insult. Maybe that's what endears him to his fans - wears his heart on his sleeve

    Lol at people making excuses for the dumb statement.


    According to this logic then members like Mamoon shouldn’t live in Pakistan. People have opinion, the tweet said nothing wrong to get that kind of response

    I think yes, if you are a representative of your team and if a fan post a comment randomly like all Indian batsmen are overrated, then this clearly won't go well with him and he just expressed what he felt at that point of time.

    He did said he has no problem if you like Aussie or English players but he also expressed his opinion clearly to everyone out there.Just said what he felt at that time.

    1) His opinion is what people are criticizing.

    2) Telling people to move out of India just because they didn't like Indian batting is over reacting and childish response from a player like Virat.

    3) It is cricket, leave it to that, no need to stoke nationalism over someone not liking national team batting.

    I am sure there are many in India who probably do not like Indian batting, can't ask everyone to leave the country. lol

    Even I am not a fan of Indian batting. But I don't get this point, why you would say this to Indian captain that all Indian batsmen are overrated and I prefer England and Australian batsmen over them. You have your preference but saying this to the Indian captain that all Indian batsmen are overrated will definitely not go well with him because after all he plays for his country,he plays to keep the expectations of the fans and all Indian batsmen also play for their country and their fans all over the country.

    The talk of leaving India probably came out childish and from what he just felt emotionally at that point of time, but as fans we need to understand this part because someone who plays for his country and his fans and the whole team gets to hear this statement might not go down well.

    It is something you have to look from everyone's perspective and not from just one end.

    What? Can you please stop tripping over yourself just because you want to defend Kohli's stupidity?

    The fans are entitled to criticize the players on their performances if they believe that said players are not doing well. "Playing for your country" is not an excuse for such remarks, Kohli is not a soldier who is eating bullets for his country, he is an athelete and should feel privileged that he got a chance to represent India. He should especially feel privileged that he's become a superstar due to these very fans that he is now asking to GTHO.

    Additionally, this comment of his can be fuel for the already dangerous situation in India where people have been assaulted for supporting other cricket teams in the past. When the captain and one of the most famous Indians in the world is saying that people who support non-Indian atheletes/teams should be kicked out, what do you think is going to happen when some nationalist with low self-esteem comes across a guy supporting a foreign team?

    All in all, this was a dumb comment for a 31 year old to make. I guess some people never grow up.

    And its not surprising that there are st least a few Indians who see through the facade and know that this current batting lineup is overrated. Barring Kohli, who himself is no Sachin, the rest have many flaws and have been exposed time and time again.

    Even dictaror's don't try to make themselves look like idiots. Kohli said a very stupid thing which has nothing to do with nationalism. India is not a communist swamp like North Korea, it's a major importer and exporter of products, service and culture. Some things are not humorous and can damage repuation. Kohli should make an apology for his remark if he doesn't want be remembered as a tool in future.

    Bad rep can hurt your legacy though. You don't have to act like a saint but least you can do is not talk stupid. Akhtar was among top 3 most popular cricketer in early 2000s but he's fallen off the ladder now due to controversy. Not comparing Kohli to Akhar but you get point.

    As a fan I will give the benefit of doubt to that fan. May be he also had high hopes from our batsmen when they toured England. After the test series they did look like a bunch of overrated and overpaid noobs. And just like fans have no right to decide when Virat Kohli should skip Asia Cup or T20 series against West Indies, Virat Kohli too has no power to decide who should leave India or not.

    I like him as a batsman only. But as a captain and also off the field he is not a very likeable human being.

    His on-field behaviour is shameful, he acts like Australians who're the most ill-manner bunch in cricket. *** for tat attitude is not very likable for cricketers (although I don't like that ideology, but that's how it is). He has also said quite a few silly stuff during press conference after becoming captain.

    People might have forgotten his Kumble affair had he kept his mouth shut everytime a reporter provokes him. He doesn't do himself favour giving stupid answers to stupid questions regarding team selection and overseas test performance. Shashtri being his puppet doesn't help either, many people think Kohli has too much influence on the team (a big reason why Dhoni is still around).

    People are still fond of Ganguly and captain Dhoni (not the player). I don't know how people will view Kohli the captain after he retires. So far the perception is not very positive.

    We have to see Kohli's ODI win ratio after Dhoni retires/axed. Dhoni is basically the disguised captain in LOIs, that's the only reason he is around (even though he's not needed, nor he should be). As for tests, the Australia series will be a big one for Kohli.

    Really poor from Kohli. As a captain of the national side, he should have laughed it off.

    He could have taken a high road here, but seriously it is not a big deal. Those comments from that so called fan were totally out of line.

    Fan - I prefer watching non-Indian batsmen

    Kohli - Leave the country then.

    What is worse?

    Chalo yaar agreed, he got carried away, but like I said it is not a big deal.
    At the end of the day, he is still human.

    Spot on.He once said in an interview that Hershel Gibbs was his favorite cricketer and Federer his favorite sportsperson.
    He always has been arrogant and just shows fake humility as advised by his PR team.

    By your logic Aussies have every right to be abusive and sledge everyone as they are the current World champs and the top cricketing nation.

    Never like this hypocrisy where people hate Warner for sledging while for Kohli hurling abuses he can say what he wants.

    Some years back when a man in Pak was reprimanded for saying Kohli was his cricketing hero the Indian captain didn't tell him to support his own team. So according to Kohl it is okay for people of other countries to have Indian hero's but he does not like it when the shoe is on the other foot. Some logical Indians rightfully giving him a severe bashing on twitter over what they call his "embarrassing comments".

    Kohli should start playing Cricket in a lungi and only speak Hindi from now on! After all he wouldn't want any foreign influence maligning his Indian pride. Someone should also tell him that Cricket was invented by the Brits. Stupid man.

    You can take Kohli out of Delhi, but can't take the Delhi out of Kohli it seems. Completely infantile and idiotic statement.

    Would have been better off waiting for wifey's PR team to send him a reaction script instead of trying to be spontaneous/funny. Has only displayed his small mindedness here

    Logic of some PPers
    When Warner reacts after some bad things said about his Family-He is a bully,deserves it etc...
    For Kohli who cant take a negative comment and hurls abuses at everyone(See SA series even didn't spare poor Keshav Mehraj)-Kohli plays with emotion,aggressive captain,King Kohli,Kohli knows how to give it back,great player can do anything etc.
    His fall from grace will be spectacular to watch
    Such hypocrisy.Even Dravid whom I respect a lot said that he cringes at his statements.

    Virat Kohli‘s recent comments about asking a fan to ‘leave India’ has apparently not gone down too well with the BCCI. The India captain, who has been rested for the T20I series against a West Indies, embroiled himself in fresh controversy after a video of him went viral on social media. It shows Kohli saying that “those who prefer English and Australian batsmen should not live in India.”

    The video, available on Kohli’s recently-launched app, shows him expressing his disapproval after a fan called him an ‘over-rated batsman’ and that he prefers watching English and Australian batsmen instead. After reading the message out loud, Kohli replied: “Ok, 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.”

    Kohli’s comments have led to his trolling on social media, but more importantly, it seems to have drawn an adverse reaction from the BCCI bosses, as per a report in the Times of India.

    “We, at the BCCI value our cricket fans and respect them and their choices. I loved to watch Sunil Gavaskar bat, but also loved watching (Gordon) Greenidge, (Desmond) Haynes and Viv Richards. I loved watching Sachin, Viru (Virender Sehwag), Sourav (Ganguly), VVS (Laxman), Rahul (Dravid) bat but also loved Mark Waugh, Brian Lara and so many others. Shane Warne for me has been the most exciting spinner to watch, but one felt the most thrill when Anil (Kumble) was bowling. Kapil Dev on song was a delight to watch as were (Richard) Hadlee, (Ian) Botham and Imran (Khan),” BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary said.

    “I think this has to do with respecting cricketing excellence without any thoughts about geographical or political boundaries.”

    Kohli is quite active on Instagram where he can be seen posting video promoting international brands. In fact, many have found Kohli’s statement hypocritical considering he once called South Africa batsman Herschelle Gibbs his favourite cricketer.

    An undisclosed BCCI official said: “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 BCCI’s revenue will fall, and consequently the players’ fees. If he checks his contract, he may find that he may have violated his contract with this statement. Just like he violated BCCI’s contract with Nike when travelling to England to support Puma. He should walk the talk and support the BCCI’s partners rather than focusing on private endorsements. He is a great player and it’s time to try and be a great human being.”

    Kohli last played in the five-match ODI series against West Indies where he scored three centuries and became the fastest cricketer to 10000 ODI runs.
