India talisman Virat Kohli turned 31 on Tuesday (November 5). He spent his birthday up in the mountains of Bhutan with actress-wife Anushka Sharma. The couple who often make time from their busy schedules to travel together are once again off trekking.
Kohli, who made his international in August 2008, has gone on to earn nothing short of legendary status in the game, having surpassed many a record and on-course to set plenty more as he enters what should be the peak of his career.
Under his captaincy, India recently registered 11 consecutive Test series wins – the joint-most by a team in history, equaling the previous record set by Australia.
On Kohli’s birthday, former and current India cricketers took to Twitter to pour wishes for the Delhi-born batsman.
Penning a wish for Kohli, cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar wrote, “Continue scoring runs and leading India with the same passion! All the best.”
