Virat Kohli | GETTY

Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli replied back to Indian hipsters who like foreign batsmen more than their own nation’s cricketers. In a video doing rounds on social media, Virat can be seen responding to mean comments by fans. He even asks those fans to leave India if they don’t like things here.

“He is an overrated batsman. Nothing seems special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsman more than these Indians,” a fan wrote which irked the 30-year-old.

Virat responded to the comment and said, “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?” He added, “I don’t mind you not liking me. I don’t you should live in our country and like other’s thing. Get your priorities sorted.”

Kohli is currently the world’s best batsman and disliking him would be absurd. Of course, we all have our own choices but comparing him with others and then degrading one of the best cricket has ever produced is foolish.
