Unsurprisingly, Kohli's response has invoked both ridicule and anger, with fans and others saying that his answer was not sportsmen-like. "I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians", Kohli reads out aloud in the video.

One person had said that Kohli is overrated and that it is more enjoyable to watch batsmen from Australia and England.

In response, Kohli said, "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then. you should go and live somewhere else no". Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? Kohli replied to the fan and asked him to leave India and go to those countries if he could not back Indian cricketers. I don't mind you not liking me but I don't think you should live in our country and like other things.

Kohli launched his mobile app on his 30th birthday on November 5. Get your priorities sorted, he responded.

A batsman par excellence with a plethora of records to his name, Kohli spent his birthday with wife Anushka Sharma in Haridwar.

In the recently-concluded ODI series against West Indies, Kohli also surpassed Sachin Tendulkar's record to become the fastest to scale the 10,000 runs milestone in the 50-over format of the game. He was in red-hot form and finished the five-match series as the top run-getter with 453 runs at an average of 151. 00.
