Virat Kohli becomes the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 ODI runs
In the video, Kohli is seen reading out a message from a cricket fan who described him as an “overrated batsman”.
He also said he enjoyed watching batsmen from English and Australian teams rather than the current Indian team,
who the fan referred to as “these Indians”.
The statement, he writes, is “probably an extension of the nationalist narrative that modern India tries to propagate”.
Last month, Virat Kohli became the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 one-day international runs in a match against West Indies.
He achieved the feat in his 205th innings and surpassed Tendulkar, who did it in 259 innings in 2001.
