Virat Kohli lashes out at fan

"I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians", the fan said of Kohli.

On Thursday, the Indian captain went into damage control mode as he put out an explanation for his comments.

Virat Kohli was on Wednesday embroiled in a controversy when a fan termed him an "over-rated batsman" comparing him to England and Australia cricketers.

"I don't think you should live in India then", Kohli, who has 27.1 million followers on Twitter, said in a video posted on his new app to sell exclusive merchandise. "Millions from other countries idolise him".

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. So, going by the Indian skippers logic, shouldn't he himself the leave the country first? Or do you think cricket fans should have the freedom to pick and choose their favourites irrespective of their nationality?

Harsha Bhogle, a prominent cricket commentator and journalist, also weighed in on the controversy.
