Perhaps, Indian skipper Virat Kohli will not take the interaction video any sooner on Social media. A slight error in his statement drawn huge controversy in Indian cricket thus making the life harder for Indian captain. Meanwhile, one of the BCCI officials isn’t pleased whatsoever with his statement.

In an interaction video, one of the fans quoted saying that he likes foreign batsmen more than the Indian batsmen. Further, he added saying that the Virat Kohli is the over-rated cricketer in the Indian cricket.

In reply, Virat Kohli, who wasn’t pleased with the comment, asked the fan to leave India and make his living in the foreign countries. He also asked the fan to get his priorities right before declaring his opinion out.

He is Earning because of Indian fans – BCCI official

One of the BCCI officials in the recent interaction quoted saying that it is a stupid comment from Virat Kohli to ask the fan to leave India. Further, he lashed out at him saying that he is making his living because of Indian fans.

Speaking furtherly, he went on to say that the Indian skipper has violated the rules. But, in the meantime, he also highlighted the fact that Virat Kohli made his comment on a private form that has no association with BCCI.

“It was a very stupid comment to make. He should have been more careful. He must understand that the kind of money he is earning is because Indian fans have invested in this game,” he said.

However, CoA has already intervened into the issue and will make an official statement at the earliest. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli issued a statement on it and asked the fans to look at the things in a lighter way.
