Virat Kohli bashing is an act of ‘mischievous targeting’: Mohammad Kaif | Cricket News


NEW DELHI: Facing criticism for his comment, where he asked a fan to leave the country, Virat Kohli has found an ally in former India batsman Mohammad Kaif, who has labelled the social media bashing of the India captain as an act of “mischievous targeting”.

The controversy erupted after a video appeared on social media, through which Kohli was promoting his official application that was launched on his birthday on November 5. In that video, Kohli is seen criticising a fan who said that he likes English and Australian batsmen more than the current Indian players.

“I don’t think you should live in India. Go and live somewhere else. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don’t mind you not liking me. I don’t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right,” Kohli replied in the video.

But Kaif feels Kohli’s “statements are twisted” and taken out of context.

“The unfair targeting of Kohli just shows how statements are twisted according to whatever suits the agenda of people. He has publicly in the past admired sportsman from across the globe & his statement clearly was in a certain context. But mischievous targeting is a norm for a few,” Kaif has tweeted.

Meanwhile on Thursday, Kohli tweeted a clarification as well.

“I guess trolling isn’t for me guys, I’ll stick to getting trolled! I spoke about how “these Indians” was mentioned in the comment and that’s all. I’m all for freedom of choice. ?? Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all,” Kohli had written on his Twitter handle.
