Virat Kohli, who turned 31 on Tuesday (November 5), 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 the Team India skipper.
Former India international Yuvraj Singh also posted a throwback picture with Virat on Twitter and captioned it as, “Yeh bhi din they! Aur ek aaj ka din hai! Jahan bhi ho khush raho, God bless you always! Happy birthday @imVkohli”.

Captain Kohli responded to Yuvi’s tweet in Punjabi, saying, “Uparwaale ke diye sab din mehr hain paji. Rab rakha. Lots of love to you always” (Everyday has been a blessing by the almighty’s grace. May God protects us).
Uparwaale ke diye sab din mehr hain paji. Rab rakha. Lots of love to you always 🙏😇

Virat has currently taken a break from international cricket, which saw his opting out of the ongoing T20I series against Bangladesh. In his absence, Rohit Sharma is leading the Men in Blue as they gear up for a ‘do or die’ contest in Rajkot later in the day.
Virat will return to lead India in the two-match Test series against Bangladesh starting from November 14 at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. The final match, which will be the first day-night Test hosted by India, will take place at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata from November 22.
