In a video which is going viral on social media, Kohli can be seen sending a stern message out to an Indian fan who said he didn’t like Indian batsmen and would instead prefer watching Australian and English batsmen play. He was reading mean comments about him on social media when he came across a message which had harsh words for him and his Indian teammates.

“He (Virat) is an overrated batsman. Nothing seems special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians,” the fan wrote which left Kohli furious as he didn’t hold back in letting his frustration known. Calling out the fan Kohli said that he didn’t mind the criticism about him but if the someone cannot like Indian players while living in India then they should not be living in the country.

“I don’t think you should live in India. Go and 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’s thing. Get your priorities sorted,” Kohli said responding to the fan’s comments.

Kohli was in red-hot form in the recently-concluded ODI series against West Indies as he finished the series as the top run-getter with a staggering 453 runs in five innings at an average of 151.00. He also slammed a hat-trick of centuries in the first three ODIs to enter the elite 10,000-run club in ODIs, leaving behind Sachin Tendulkar to become the quickest to the milestone.
