Virat Kohli clarifies 'leave India' remark after social media backlash

‘I don’t think you should live in India, go and live somewhere else’: Virat Kohli lashes out at fan

After creating social media upheaval with his comments, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli on Thursday made an attempt at lightening the mood saying he respects 'freedom of choice'.

Meanwhile, Kohli is now the No 1 batsman in Tests and ODIs and hence it did not go down well with. Swamy took to Twitter and his post read, "What is wrong if Virat Kohli tells a questioner (who tells him that he enjoys watching foreign cricketers more that Indian cricketers) that he should migrate overseas?"

"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".

Prosecutors say doctors had told Bruns not to drive after she had a previous medical episode while behind the wheel. The killer also told cops afterwards that she had been suffering from the effects of multiple sclerosis.


Responding to the criticism Kohli said: "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then... you should go and live somewhere else, no? Get your priorities right".

His outburst prompted a backlash on social media from cricket lovers across India. Instead of naming Indian cricketer like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly or Rahul Dravid as his favourite, Kohli chose an overseas player.

"Kohli is highly arrogant and that is one trait which is his Achilles heel", tweeted another user.

Jeff Sessions Is Out - Slog
Mr Trump tweeted that Matthew G Whitaker , Mr Sessions' chief of staff, would become Acting Attorney-General. Jeff Sessions has resigned as Attorney General following consistent criticism from President Donald Trump .


Kohli was in the eye of a storm during the launch of his mobile application when he told a fan that he should not be living in India if he can not like Indian cricketers. "Kapil Dev on song was a delight to watch as were (Richard) Hadlee, (Ian) Botham and Imran (Khan)", he added.

"I think this has to do with respecting cricketing excellence without any thoughts about geographical or political boundaries". The BCCI's revenue will fall, and consequently the players' fees. However, Virat also said that he doesn't have any problem with the fan not liking him. India first play a three-match T20I series, which will be followed up with a four-match Test and a three-match ODI series. If he checks his contract, he may find that he may have violated his contract with this statement.
