Kohli triggered a row after a fan observed that he sees nothing special in the skipper's batting and that he enjoys watching English and Australian batsmen more than this Indian. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries?

"Okay, I don't think you should live in India then... you should go and live somewhere else, no?"

Meanwhile, Kohli is now the No 1 batsman in Tests and ODIs and hence it did not go down well with.

While many of his fans and other Twitter users have trolled him for this, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was upset with the Delhi cricketer's response.

After creating social media upheaval with his comments, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli on Thursday made an attempt at lightening the mood saying he respects 'freedom of choice'. "But media is slamming Virat Kohli only". 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.

"Shane Warne for me has been the most exciting spinner to watch, but one felt the most thrill when Anil (Kumble) was bowling".

She moved into more emotional territory as the song progressed, holding back tears while singing about her future wedding day. On today's episode of Ellen , Grande performed the song live for the first time.

"I think this has to do with respecting cricketing excellence without any thoughts about geographical or political boundaries", he continued.

This isn't the first time Kohli has been in the spotlight for controversial statements.

"Virat wants his two premier fast bowlers to be rested for the IPL but it could well be counter-productive as they will be out of match practice for two months before the World Cup", he further said.

India skipper Kohli who was rested from the T20 series against the Caribbean celebrated his first Diwali after marriage with wife Anushka following their visit to Haridwar just a few days ago during his 30th birthday.
