Clearing air on his 'Live outside India' comment to a cricket fan, who had stated that he 'prefers Australian and England batsmen over Indians', Indian skipper Virat Kohli has said that he is completely in favor for the freedom of choice of an individual while claiming that his statement was misinterpreted.

The Indian skipper, having faced huge backlash from all the quarters for his comment, took to Twitter to make his stand clear on the matter. His message on the social media website read,

"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."

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.
