Kohli triggered a row after a fan observed that he sees nothing special in the skipper's batting and that he enjoys watching English and Australian batsmen more than this Indian. The words definitely didn't go down well with the Delhi-born cricketer and he bashed the fan, mentioning that he should leave India if he doesn't like the Indian players.
India captain Virat Kohli has provoked a social media storm after telling a critic to leave the country for criticising his batting. I don't think you should live in our country and like other things.
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. The video was released on Kohli's own app, and showed him responding to Twitter and Instagram comments made about him.

It was college night and country two-step lessons were being offered Wednesday at the Borderline, according to its website. Garo Kuredjian said at a news conference early Thursday that a sheriff's deputy was also shot and taken to a hospital.
"When Kohli mooted the idea, CoA chief Vinod Rai asked Rohit about his take". 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. "Get your priorities right", Kohli said.
"I think this has to do with respecting cricketing excellence without any thoughts about geographical or political boundaries", he continued. Seasoned cricket expert and commentator Harsha Bhogle in a tweet said "Virat Kohli's statement is a reflection of the bubble that most famous people either slip into or are forced into".
Team India had also requested the BCCI to compensate the players who would be missing the cash-rich league, which is expected to start in the first week of April. Kohli is now not in action for Team India as he was rested for the ongoing T20I series against West Indies.
