India cricket captain Virat Kohli is embroiled in controversy after lashing out at a cricket fan who said he preferred English and Australian batsmen to Indian players.

The drama unfolded during the video recording of the launch of his mobile phone application. Kohli was responding to a "mean" comment by a fan who felt the Indian skipper is an over-rated batsman. Kohli during the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in 2008 had said that Gibbs is his favourite player.

Witnesses said they had spoken to friends who escaped the shooting, which took place during a popular student night at the bar. Information on the extent of the victims' injuries has not yet been released.

He suggested, that those who didn't like watching Indian batsmen should consider migrating to another country. Not long ago, Kohli became the fastest to 10,000 runs in ODI cricket and also became the first Indian to slam three consecutive centuries in ODI cricket, which is a testament of the surreal form he is in.

"Virat needs to understand that if the fans go away to other countries, then no Puma etc. will want to sign him for ₹100 crores".

I got to hook up with him a couple of weeks back, and I saw the way he looked and he was - he looks like an animal right now. Take the stuff that he's really good at, and then integrate him in the offense accordingly. "I know he'll help their team".

The fan had said Kohli was "overrated" and less enjoyable to watch than his English and Australian counterparts, prompting a frosty response.

The 30-year-old put forward the request during a recent meeting between the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) and Team India members, including captain Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, coach Ravi Shastri and chief selector MSK Prasad, according to The Indian Express. But I don't mind you not liking me but I don't think you should live in our country and like other things.
