A controversy erupted after a video on social media showed the Indian captain Virat Kohli said that "those who prefer English and Australian batsmen should not live in India".

In the video, Kohli reads out the comment, which says Kohli is overrated, adding: "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indian".

In the video, Kohli is seen reading out a message from a cricket fan who described him as an "over rated batsman". Finally, it seems he has a backer in Dr. Subramanian Swamy, who feels there is nothing wrong with Kohli's statement as we live in a country where everyone has the right to Freedom of Speech.

The 30-year-old put forward the request during a recent meeting between the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) and Team India members, including captain Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, coach Ravi Shastri and chief selector MSK Prasad, according to The Indian Express. "Get your priorities right". 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.

"I think this has to do with respecting cricketing excellence without any thoughts about geographical or political boundaries". Some even went on to remind Kohli of his statement during the U19 Cricket World Cup in 2008, wherein he said that his favourite cricketer was former South African opener Herschelle Gibbs.

An undisclosed BCCI official said: "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".

Last month, Kohli became the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 one-day worldwide runs in a match against West Indies.
