One person had said that Kohli is overrated and that it is more enjoyable to watch batsmen from Australia and England. "But media is slamming Virat Kohli only".

In response, Kohli said, "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then. you should go and live somewhere else no".

These words by Indian skipper Virat Kohli has set social media abuzz. Finally, it seems he has a backer in Dr. Subramanian Swamy, who feels there is nothing wrong with Kohli's statement as we live in a country where everyone has the right to Freedom of Speech.

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. But now, commentator Harsha Bhogle has come out with his views on the matter. But I don't mind you not liking me but I don't think you should live in our country and like other things. He added that the fan should get his "priorities straight".

Some others mocked Kohli's response.

In 2016, when India's federal government cancelled 86% of the country's currency, Kohli called it the "greatest move" he has ever encountered in politics.

Many Twitter users didn't accept the Delhi Dasher's statement as they went on to attack him on his so-called hyper-nationalist comment.

Virat Kohli, who has been rested from the ongoing three-match T20I series against West Indies, has found himself in a bit of a sticky spot after a video of him saying that Indians who don't support the national cricket team should not live in the country has gone viral on the internet.
