Kohli, who has been rested for the ongoing three-match T20 series against West Indies, was recording a promotional video for his newly launched app, Virat Kohli Official App while celebrating his 30th birthday on Monday.
One tweet read, "Over-rated batsman and personally I see nothing special in his batting".
Swashbuckling Indian batsman Virat Kohli became subject to a fresh controversy on Tuesday when he suggested that Indian cricket fans who like foreign batsmen more than the domestic ones should go and live in foreign countries. Kohli was reportedly reading out messages sent to him and responding to them. "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians", Kohli read out the cricket enthusiast's tweet.
Some might say that there is so much more at stake for them given that Kohli is India's captain.
"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?
While adding that he didn't mind any sort of dislike towards him, the Indian skipper felt that one should get his priorities sorted before posting such comments. He also crossed the 10,000-run mark this year and surpassed legendary Sachin Tendulkar becoming the fastest batsman in the history of the sport to do so.
Kolhli was recently praised by West Indies legend Brian Lara and former South Africa captain Graeme Smith for his insatiable hunger for success.
