‘I’ll stick to getting trolled’, tweets Kohli after social media storm

NEW DELHI: Virat Kohli on Thursday responded to social media users who have been trolling the Indian skipper after he asked a fan to leave the country if he did not like to watch Indian cricketers in action.

“I guess trolling isn’t for me guys, I’ll stick to getting trolled! I spoke about how “these Indians” was mentioned in the comment and that’s all. I’m all for freedom of choice. ?? Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all,” Kohli wrote on his Twitter handle.

Kohli on Monday had faced the backlash after his reaction to a fan, who confessed his preference for English and Australian cricketers over Kohli’s blue brigade.
“He (Virat) is an overrated batsman. Nothing seems special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians,” the fan wrote which left Kohli fuming as he didn’t hold himself back.
Kohli had admitted that he was not personally affected by the criticism but pointed out that if someone does not like Indian players while living in India then they should not be living in the country.
“I don’t think you should live in India. Go and live somewhere else. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don’t mind you not liking me. I don’t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right,” Kohli had replied while recording a video for his newly-launched app.
Kohli struck three consecutive centuries in the recently-concluded five-match ODI rubber against the West Indies and has surpassed master Sachin Tendulkar to become the quickest to reach 10,000 ODI runs.
