Virat Kohli turned 28 today! Yes, the Indian Test skipper, who is enjoying the form of his life and is busy winning matches for the country, turned a year older on Saturday and the fans made sure the world knew of it. #HappyBirthdayVirat began trending since midnight (no surprise there) as wishes came in from all corners for the most stylish cricketer.





Sachin Tendulkar, bitten by the Sehwag-bug on twitter, tweeted a fun wish to the “most shararati guy” in the team.





Virender Sehwag was his usual ‘trend-setting’ self, treating his followers to a double dose of laughter with cheeky wishes for Chikoo (Kohli’s nickname).





From coach Anil Kumble to team-mates to support staff, all the members of Team India sent their birthday wishes to Kohli in a special video message posted by the BCCI on twitter.

Youngsters too joined in to wish their Test skipper on his birthday, peppering the wish with gratitude for his batting and fitness tips.

If Kedar Jadhav was all humility while thanking Kohli profusely for the opportunities and the way he changed his life, Jayant Yadav offered ‘bhangra (Punjabi folk dance) lessons in return for the batting classes.

Even as Anil Kumble and team had a fun cake-cutting celebration with Kohli in Rajkot, BCCI president Anurag Thakur wished him ‘tons’ of success in the upcoming matches.
