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

(Web Desk) - Indian skipper Virat Kohli is being heavily trolled on social media sites after he asked a fan to "leave India" over not liking Indian batsmen.

In a video that has gone viral for all the wrong reasons and available on his newly released app, Kohli was reading tweets and Instagram messages before coming across an user, who said the Indian mainstay has nothing special in his batting.

Earlier today, Virat was in the spotlight for slamming a cricket freak who expressed his views on Indian batsmen. For the Indian skipper, the response to this was to say that those who have choices like this should not be living in India. "I don't think you should live in India". Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don't think you should live in our country and like other's thing. Get your priorities sorted, he responded. Indian cricket will move forward on Kohli's shoulders.

Some Twitter users have also picked out his self-introductory video during the 2008 U-19 World Cup, where he was seen mentioning former South African batsman Herschelle Gibbs as his favourite cricketer. Are you getting money to like Australian and English cricketers? No. The application was launched on Virat Kohli's 30th birthday on Monday. Recently, Kohli became the fastest batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs.

The Indian captain achieved the milestone in just 205 innings, bettering Sachin Tendulkar's previous record of 259 innings. Before the ODI series against the West Indies, he was very impressive on the England tour where he scored more than 500 runs even as his teammates struggled.
