Indian captain Virat Kohli has been facing criticism lately on the social media after his controversial statement of asking an individual to leave the country if he doesn't like his own country's cricket team.
"Virat needs to understand that if the fans go away to other countries, then no Puma etc. will want to sign him for Rs100 crores".
The Indian cricketer said that he didn't mind the fan not liking him but he didn't like it when people live in one country and like things from other countries. "Get your priorities right", Kohli said. "Yes, I can like and endorse worldwide brands because I am getting money for it".
As much he's adored for his on-field exploits, Virat Kohli has on several occasions been lambasted for his comments and actions, both on and off it.
For those who came in late, here's what happened: In a section on his app where he reacted to mean tweets sent to him, Kohli is seen replying to someone who said that they prefer English and Australian batsmen over him.

According to Reuters, one of BHP's customers in China, a steel producer, has not yet received any notice from the miner. The miner said its normal train operations remain suspended, estimating that around 1.5 km of train track were damaged.
Harsha Bhogle, a prominent cricket commentator and journalist, also weighed in on the controversy.
Anyway, now with Kohli's latest response, this controversy has nearly come to an end.
Some might say that there is so much more at stake for them given that Kohli is India's captain. It is a comfortable bubble and that is why famous people must try hard to prevent it from forming.
He had gone on to clarify his stance: "I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all".
"That is also why contrary opinions are frowned upon".
"Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season". Yes, you read it right. "Love and peace to all".
