Virat Kohli Birthday

New Delhi, Nov 5: Team India celebrated the 29th birthday of their skipper Virat Kohli after the end of the second T20I match against New Zealand in Rajkot, on Saturday.

The hosts might have faced defeat in second T20I, but the star cricketer smashed 65 runs and kept India’s hopes alive till he was in the middle.

Men in Blue didn’t let go of the opportunity to cake-smash Kohli as BCCI took to social media to share the pictures of the celebration.

Kohli is seen cutting one of the two cakes and Shikhar Dhawan then gives him a piece. The players then smear their captain with the cake and Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep seem to be ones who had taken charge in doing that.

It is Kohli’s first birthday as captain of the Indian team in all formats of the game.

The squad gathered in the dressing room to celebrate Kohli’s 29th birthday.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya too posted a picture along with the captain tweeting, “Revenge no. 1️ Happy birthday, skipper- @imVkohli.”

Born on November 5, 2017, Kohli has amassed a total of 4658 runs in Tests, 9030 runs in ODIs and 1943 in T20Is to become one of the leading batsmen in the world. He has dominated in all formats and is currently ranked at the top in the ICC list of ODI as well as T20I batsmen.
