Amidst the controversy surrounding Virat Kohli's reply of 'Live somewhere outside India' to a cricket fan stating he prefers 'Australian and England batsmen over Indians', commentator and cricket analyst Harsha Bhogle has mentioned that the Indian skipper's statement 'is a reflection of the bubble that most famous people either slip into or are forced into'.
Bhogle, who is very vocal about his opinions, took to Twitter to express his views on the comments by Kohli, hinting that the 30-year-old should have refrained from saying something like this. His Twitter posts read,
"Virat Kohli's statement is a reflection of the bubble that most famous people either slip into or are forced into. The voices within it are frequently those that they wish to hear. It is a comfortable bubble and that is why famous people must try hard to prevent it from forming"
"That is also why contrary opinions are frowned upon. Power and fame tend to attract those people who agree with you and reinforce your opinion because they benefit from proximity to fame and power," he further added.
Recently, during a Q&A session with fans on Twitter for his official Virat Kohli Official App, when a random individual questioned Kohli's batting ability and mentioned preferring to watch other countries batsman, the Indian skipper got a bit angry.
The individual's question to Kohli read, "Over-rated batsman and personally I see nothing special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians."
The Indian skipper, in his own style, replied by stating that any individual who doesn't like his own country's team should leave the country and reside somewhere else.
"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? But 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," he said.
