In an unusual off-field action, Virat Kohli was unstoppable yet again in the video available on his newly released app. Swamy took to Twitter and his post read, "What is wrong if Virat Kohli tells a questioner (who tells him that he enjoys watching foreign cricketers more that Indian cricketers) that he should migrate overseas?" The 30-year-old was reading the messages criticising him and calling Indian cricketers overrated while there were some messages where users highly admired Australian and English batsmen over their Indian counterparts. "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians", the fan had stated.

"Okay, I don't think you should live in India then... you should go and live somewhere else, no?"

The Rang De Basanti actor Siddharth called the Indian skipper's comment "an idiotic set of words".

India captain Virat Kohli has provoked a social media storm after telling a critic to leave the country for criticising his batting. "I loved watching Sachin, Viru (Virender Sehwag), Sourav (Ganguly), VVS (Laxman), Rahul (Dravid) bat but also loved Mark Waugh, Brian Lara and so many others", BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary was quoted saying by the Times of India. "Get your priorities right", Kohli replied. "Kapil Dev on song was a delight to watch as were (Richard) Hadlee, (Ian) Botham and Imran (Khan)", he added.
