Ever since Virat Kohli’s controversial video went viral, he has garnered strong criticism from all corners. Most of Kohli’s fans and former cricketers feel that the comments made by Indian skipper were a bit uncalled for. Kohli was irked while reading a comment made by a cricket follower, who, personally, liked Australian and English batsmen more than the Indian skipper. The cricket lover also called Kohli an “over-rated” batsman. Virat Kohli Suggests Fan to Leave India Who Likes Foreign Batsmen; Watch Viral Video of Indian Captain’s 'Intolerant' Response

The Delhi born cricketer then lashed out at the cricket follower and said. “Okay, I don’t think you should live in India then. You should go and live somewhere else, no? Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don’t mind you not liking me, but I don’t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right.”

Kohli’s comments have apparently not gone down well with BCCI’s top officials. “It was a very stupid comment to make. He should have been more careful. He must understand that the kind of money he is earning is because Indian fans have invested in this game,” a BCCI official was quoted as saying by PTI on Thursday. Virat Kohli’s Favourite Cricketer Was Herschelle Gibbs NOT Sachin Tendulkar, So by His Own Logic Indian Captain Should Leave India!

“But again the comment was made on his private forum or business initiative. He hasn’t used a BCCI platform so that’s also an issue,” the senior official added.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Thursday said that they would look into the controversial video. "The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) will look into the matter," a source told ANI.
