Leave India If You Prefer Cricketers From Other Countries: Virat Kohli

"I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians", Kohli read out the tweet from a fan during his app launch.

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.

"Virat needs to understand that if the fans go away to other countries, then no Puma etc. will want to sign him for Rs100 crores. Get your priorities right", Kohli said.

Meanwhile, Kohli is now the No 1 batsman in Tests and ODIs and hence it did not go down well with.

In a meeting with Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (COA), Virat Kohli is learnt to have requested that pacers (Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and others) should not take part in 12th edition of IPL so that they can be fully fit for next year's World Cup. Kohli though hasn't reportedly demanded rest for the Indian batsmen in the lead up to the World Cup. "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians".

"Shane Warne for me has been the most exciting spinner to watch, but one felt the most thrill when Anil (Kumble) was bowling".

"I think this has to do with respecting cricketing excellence without any thoughts about geographical or political boundaries". In fact, many have found Kohli's statement hypocritical considering he once called South Africa batsman Herschelle Gibbs his favourite cricketer.

It has also been learnt that no request has been made by team India about resting the batsmen.

Team India had also requested the BCCI to compensate the players who would be missing the cash-rich league, which is expected to start in the first week of April. He should walk the talk and support the BCCI's partners rather than focusing on private endorsements.

Kohli has been rested for India's ongoing T20I series against West Indies, which they have already sealed 2-0 with one game to play.
