Lanky fast bowler Ishant Sharma turned 29 on Saturday. He was one of the members of the Indian Test squad in the recently concluded Test series against Sri Lanka and has finally returned home after a vacation with wife Pratima Singh.
On the occasion of Ishant’s 29th birthday, many current and former cricketers wished the Delhi lad on social media but what Virender Sehwag did was fantastic and hilarious as well.
Keeping his swag intact, Viru posted a picture of a Victoria lady from 1840s and mentioned that she taught Indian pacer how to make game faces. In his Twitter post, Sehwag wrote: “Happy Birthday ImIshant. Burj Khalifa ji, found out your trainer. Keep entertaining and stay blessed.”

It was in the reference to the incident when Ishant imitated Australian skipper Steven Smith during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test match held in Bangalore. His game face broke the internet and later, the cricket experts were seen taking up the ‘Game Face’ challenge on live TV.
Also, Rohit Sharma took a slight dig at Ishant in his birthday message. He wrote, “Many happy returns bro may the wicket list continue to grow just like your hair. Have a great day ImIshant”
