Making runs against other countries on batsmen friendly tracks in India has gone up to his head.Most of the runs of the present Indian team members have come against weak opponents.Oflate BCCI has organised more matches in India and batsmen have made runs.When Indian team visit England,Austrailia or SA BCCI tries to get seies in peak summer so that ball will not swing.See how India team visited in last two years.When you play 14odd tests,40 ODIs and 20-30 T20s at home every year you can even beat Don Bradman!!In comparison Newzealand played a T20 match after nearly one and half years.So the fan was right.Kohli and Sharma should not be compared with other cricketing greats of yore.

Very true. In recent England ODIs Indian top order failed miserably. They were not able to hold the wicket for even short time. So one should not be compared the performance against a weak team.

Every country in its home ground plays reasonably well..and Virat definitely played better though at times his team let him down...one can't compare Don's era with today...Can you name a single player abroad with such consistency and class..this so called fans understand nothing of cricket but just want to show Virat down
Nothing wrong in what Virat said. Yes his comments do border on the sense of arrogance .. But what he said , is very clear , you neednt like me . By the way what is so special about the English & Australian cricketers ?
Till date cricket is really overrated in india, because this is the only game where you can manipulate the results, ground size & also the players quite easily. This is very popular in india because we still have lot of respect for idols, what our idols is doing, how they are behaving we are not bothered. Cricket is nowhere gentleman game it is instead a corrupt game now with lots of arrogance. Kohli is a good player but not great, he had achieved so much success in his young life and it is now visible in his arrogant behaviour.
So why does he not go live in italy? he married there! his favorite tennis player is not any indian tennis player but Angelique Kerber who won australian open...so why is he staying in india then? a very arrogant and disappointing statement....more so because now he is india's captain...
Mr.Captain to each his own, your words, act and behaviour are keenly observed, you people are worshipped and emulated. So as a cricketer gentleness is not only required in the game but also in the society. Keep your hardwork going.
yes. he is correct.for ages ppl here favour the whites;even though the whites kept them slaves for 200 yrs; ppl here;todays COOL,COOL sick generation has forgotten all that.
ppl here still feel proud if the whites shake hand with them.esp their girls.every other day i see someone talk abt USA. as if going to USA is a big thing then @sshles all to go USA. why stay here.if u dont like here.seems it was better if whites still ruled here and kicked everyone s @ss here.
if anyone s relative is abroad. ppl get mad abt him.ask that relative to take u along forever. ppl turn v shallow ,arrogant ,rude when they have to talk,help fellow indians.silly @sshls will remain @sshls
Perfect reply to someone who said "these Indians". Clearly this guy does not consider himself as Indian or feel ashamed of being Indian. So keeps himself out by calling us "These Indians". Clearly he does not deserve to stay in India and think about India and Indians in a demeaning way. Well done Kohli for showing him the right place. He can stay in England and Australia and experience how low they think of him being Indian.
