Chennai: India captain Virat Kohli recently faced heat on social media after his "leave India" comment. He has, however, tried his level best to make amends threafter.
“I don’t think you should live in India. You should live somewhere else. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don’t mind you not liking me. I don’t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right,” Kohli had replied to a fan who had commented that he enjoyed watching Australian and English batsmen more and that Kohli was an "overrated batsman".
I guess trolling isn't for me guys, I'll stick to getting trolled! 😁— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) November 8, 2018
I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all. I’m all for freedom of choice. 🙏 Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all. ✌😊
After he received flak for what was perceived as 'arrogance', Kohli came out and clarified on Twitter that trolling was not for him. This rearguard action earned him some praise.
During an interview recently, a reporter again raised the issue and the trolling that Kohli had received after his initial comments. Kohli, however, calmly replied: “It's okay.”
The ICC World No 1 batsman in ODIs and Tests has recently become the fastest to score 10,000 ODI runs and also slammed three consecutive centuries in the one-day series against the West Indies, becoming the first Indian to do so. He will soon take India on a tour of Australia, with the 1st T20I slated for November 21.
