Virat Kohli has been asked to ‘conduct himself like an Indian captain’.

Virat Kohli’s latest comment to a fan to leave India if he doesn’t like Indian batsmen hasn’t gone down well with the BCCI’s Committee of Administrators. The skipper has been asked to conduct himself with humility, according to the Mumbai Mirror.

A COA member has reportedly spoken to Kohli about his behaviour with the press and public. He has been “asked to conduct himself like an Indian captain”.

He was told to be humble, in his interactions both with the press and the public.

Virat Kohli hasn’t responded to the direction given by the COA.

Virat Kohli faced the wrath of social media users after he asked a fan to leave the country if he did not like to watch Indian cricketers in action.

Kohli, who launched the 'Virat Kohli Official App' on his 30th birthday on Monday, faced the backlash after his reaction to a fan, who confessed his preference for English and Australian cricketers over Kohli's blue brigade.

“He (Virat) is an overrated batsman. Nothing seems special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians.”

Kohli said that he was not personally affected by the criticism but added that if someone does not like Indian players while living in India, they should not be living in the country.

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.
