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

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

"I enjoy watching English and Australian batsman more than these Indians".

Mumbai: With celebrations of Diwali in full flow, Indian cricket team players wasted no time in celebrating the festival of lights with their families.

Meanwhile, Kohli is now the No 1 batsman in Tests and ODIs and hence it did not go down well with.

"He [Virat] is an overrated batsman", the fan wrote.

It seems to have worked Kohli who responded by saying, "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then... you should go and live somewhere else, no?"

Kohli's response sparked a huge controversy among the social media users with the majority criticising the Indian cricket team skipper for his comment.

Kohli has claimed that him endorsing foreign brands is not the same as people preferring foreign cricketers because he is paid for it. "Why are you living in our country and loving other countries?" he replied. He added that the fan should get his "priorities straight".

Kohli, who has been rested for the ongoing three-match T20 series against West Indies, was recording a promotional video for his newly launched app, Virat Kohli Official App while celebrating his 30th birthday on Monday. I loved to watch Sunil Gavaskar bat, but also loved watching (Gordon) Greenidge, (Desmond) Haynes and Viv Richards. In fact, many have found Kohli's statement hypocritical considering he once called South Africa batsman Herschelle Gibbs his favourite cricketer. However, Virat also said that he doesn't have any problem with the fan not liking him.

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

Just like he violated BCCI's contract with Nike when travelling to England to support Puma.
