In his congratulatory tweet, Sehwag wrote: “Seven continents in the world, seven days in a week, seven colors in a rainbow, seven basic musical notes, seven chakras in a human being, seven pheras in marriage, seven wonders of the world, the seventh day of the seventh month — birthday of a wonder of the cricketing world. Happy Birthday Dhoni. May God Bless You”.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) thanked Dhoni for a “lifetime of memories”. They tweeted: “One man, a billion emotions, a lifetime of memories, Happy Birthday, MS Dhoni”.

He is currently plying his trade for India in England and Wales in the ongoing ICC World Cup.
