India captain, Virat Kohli turned 29 on November 5 with wishes pouring in, from his teammates in the dressing room to his countless fans across the world.
“Really overwhelmed to see all the love and the wishes,” he tweeted a day later.
The sheer volume of birthday messages meant he couldn’t respond to each individually, but Kohli did express his gratitude to his teammates, past and present.
However, he had one of the most interesting Twitter exchanges with his teammate KL Rahul, who asked him to stop making batting look easy.

To this, the dynamic right-hander sent a unique reply. Kohli responded in Raghuram Rajan‘s style.
Rajan was the former RBI governor who took his leave from office last year. During his stay, Rajan cut the benchmark repo rate by 50 basis points to a four-year low of 6.75 percent in a surprise move. Responding to how the media has given him different names like ‘Santa Claus’ and ‘Hawk’, he had simply said, “My name is Raghuram Rajan and I do what I do”.
Following his steps, here’s how Virat Kohli replied to KL Rahul’s tweet,
Thanks Bru ✌️ I just do what I do! 😊
