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

Why are you living in our country and loving other countries?

Virat Kohli was quick to hit the critic out of the park saying, "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then... you should go and live somewhere else, no?"

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.

In the video, Kohli is seen reading out a message from a cricket fan who described him as an "over rated batsman".

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. In a series of tweets, Bhogle explained how a "bubble" often results in players getting cut-off from reality and why they need to listen to contrarian point of views.

In an interview with ABC news in June, Haaland said, "In 230 years, there's never been a Native American woman in Congress". Halland will fill the seat that will be vacated by the state's newly elected governor, Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham.

"The 30-year mark is the best time for batsman for batting, but in past four-five years the way Virat Kohli played, it will be a challenge for him to better his records".

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.

According to Bhogle, " Virat Kohli's statement is a reflection of the bubble that most famous people either slip into or are forced into.

The statement, he writes, is "probably an extension of the nationalist narrative that modern India tries to propagate". Not long ago, Kohli became the fastest to 10,000 runs in ODI cricket and also became the first Indian to slam three consecutive centuries in ODI cricket, which is a testament of the surreal form he is in.

He achieved the feat in his 205th innings and surpassed Tendulkar, who did it in 259 innings in 2001.
