Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, celebrated his 30th birthday on Monday, November 5. On the auspicious occasion, he launched his official application. During the promotion of the same, he was reading out some mean tweets by a few of the users. In one of the messages, a supporter mentioned that he doesn’t find anything special in the Delhi-born cricketer’s batting by any means.
Rather, he prefers watching the Australian and English cricketers play their trade on the cricket pitch. The comments didn’t go down well with Virat by any stretch of the imagination. The right-hander said that the person should leave India if he doesn’t like his own countrymen. Ever since a number of pundits, as well as the supporters, have shared their opinions on the outburst.
Kohli keeps his calm
While many of them lashed out at Kohli for the harsh words, a few people stood by him. Thereafter, Virat came out in the open and said that trolling isn’t for him and that he believes in freedom of choice. The situation worsened to such an extent that even the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) remarked that he might have violated his central contract.
Some eminent personalities surrounding some big brands also expressed their concerns following the outburst. The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA), iterated that they would look into the controversial video. Recently, Virat attended a promotional event of his brand One8 and he was seen answering the questions, thrown at him by the audience.
During the interaction, a reporter asked him whether he minds promoting his brands in the social media because he has received criticism over the medium. Kohli wasn’t flustered by the question and this time around, there wasn’t any outburst. He reverted smartly with only a couple of words- “It’s okay”
