I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians, the user said. <p></p> <p></p>He then lashed out at the user and 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? I don t mind you not liking me, but I don t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right. <p></p> <p></p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/fjW8vpf22RE" height="480" width="584" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe> <p></p> <p></p>Kohli, who <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/top-quotes-on-birthday-boy-virat-kohli-762334">recently turned 30</a>, has faced severe backlash for his comments. Some even reminded him of his comments during the U-19 Cricket World Cup in 2008 when he said that his favourite cricketer was former <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/south-africa/">South Africa</a> opener <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/herschelle-gibbs/">Herschelle Gibbs</a>.
