#5 Kohli's answer on the 'Leave India' controversy
Recently, Virat Kohli addressed an Indian that if he likes South African and English batsmen more than Indian batsmen, he should leave India and stay abroad in those countries.
This stirred a national debate with several on the social media sternly criticizing Kohli's autocratic comments. Virat faced a lot of flak on social media as well, so much so that he had to issue a clarification on Twitter, requesting people to not take it so seriously. A report also mentioned that Virat's favourite player was South African 'Herschelle Gibbs' when he was young, so he has no right to criticize any Indian if his role models are from other countries.
When he was asked the same question during the press conference, Virat seemed a little uncomfortable, responding to the same by stating, "I have always had one idol and you know his name. I've made my clarification on Twitter".
