“Hi Virat, I wish you a very, very happy birthday. I know you’re a big PUBG fan. I found this photo of your’s on your phone. Why don’t you come and teach Manish Pandey how to play a first-person shooting game,” Dhoni said.

Also, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Dinesh Karthik, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and other India players can be seen wishing Kohli with special messages.
