Virat Kohli, captain of the Indian cricket team, told a person - on video - not to live in India if he or she prefers foreign cricketers to Indian ones. "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians".

Kohli promptly rebukes the cricket lover and asks him to leave the country: "I don't think you should live in India, go and live somewhere else".

"Virat needs to understand that if the fans go away to other countries, then no Puma etc. will want to sign him for ₹100 crores. Get your priorities right", Kohli said.

India captain Virat Kohli has provoked a social media storm after telling a critic to leave the country for criticising his batting.

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

Kohli is quite active on Instagram where he can be seen posting video promoting worldwide brands.

It has also been learnt that no request has been made by team India about resting the batsmen. "He is a great player and it's time to try and be a great human being".

The right-hander, who struck three consecutive centuries in the just-concluded five-match ODI rubber against the West Indies, has surpassed batting legend Sachin Tendulkar to become the quickest to reach 10k One-day International (ODI) runs.
