Virat Kohli may have violated central contract after 'leave India' remark: BCCI

Virat Kohli sparks controversy after he asks fan to 'leave' India ‘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".

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

Known for his aggressive on-field attitude, Indian skipper Virat Kohli has now caught the Twitterati's ire for asserting those who love foreign cricketers more than Indian ones should leave the country. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don't you should live in our country and like other's thing.

While adding that he didn't mind any sort of dislike towards him, the Indian skipper felt that one should get his priorities sorted before posting such comments. Kohli was reportedly reading out messages sent to him and responding to them. But now, commentator Harsha Bhogle has come out with his views on the matter.

While many of his fans and other Twitter users have trolled him for this, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was upset with the Delhi cricketer's response.

Kohli leads Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rohit leads Mumbai Indians while Rahane had to captain Rajasthan Royals last season after Steve Smith was banned after the ball-tampering controversy in South Africa.

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.

Although no decision has been taken, India captain Kohli has suggested that fast bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and others who are likely to be picked for the quadrennial event be rested from IPL.

The statement, he writes, is "probably an extension of the nationalist narrative that modern India tries to propagate".
