On Tuesday, the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli turned 31 and took some time out to thank his fans and former teammates for wishing him well on his birthday. While Virat was celebrating his birthday with wife Anushka Sharma in Bhutan, fans and cricketers had poured in their wishes for India skipper.
Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh had shared a couple of throwback pictures with Virat Kohli on Twitter and said, “Yeh bhi din they ! Aur ek aaj ka din hai ! Jahan bhi ho khush raho, God bless you always! Happy birthday @imVkohli”.
Replying to the same, Virat Kohli tweeted, “Uparwaale ke diye sab din mehr hain paji. Rab rakha. Lots of love to you always”.
Uparwaale ke diye sab din mehr hain paji. Rab rakha. Lots of love to you always 🙏😇

Fans were eagerly waiting for Kohli’s response on Yuvraj’s tweet ever since the latter posted the tweet.
One of the fans said, “And the way he responded shows how much he respects yuvi”. Another fan said, “Virat is so spiritually inclined that anything he says now sounds like Guru’s words!!”
Who else was eagerly waiting for Kohli’s reply on this particular tweet? 😏

In the absence of Kohli, the Indian batting line-up failed to live up to expectation at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi as they only managed to score 148/6 in their quota of 20 overs. India lost the opening encounter, as they suffered first ever defeat against the Bangladesh team in the shortest format.
India will be looking to bounce back in the second T20I which is scheduled to be held on November 7 at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot while the third and final match will be held at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur on November 10.
Kohli will be joining back the Indian team for the two-match Test series against Bangladesh which is scheduled to commence on November 14 in Indore. It will be followed by the second Test is scheduled to start on November 22 in Kolkata which will be India’s first-ever day-night Test.
