Team India star Yuzvendra Chahal is celebrating his 31st birthday today (July 23). The cricket fraternity, including former and current players, took to social media to extend their best wishes to the top-quality leg-spinner of the Indian cricket team.
Chahal is currently in Sri Lanka with the rest of the squad for the white-ball series against the hosts. He is currently the leading wicket-taker in the ongoing ODI leg. The right-armer has taken five wickets in two matches at an average of 20.40.
Former India cricketer Suresh Raina took to Twitter to wish his former teammate. He wrote: “Happy Birthday @yuzi_chahal bro. Wishing you a great year ahead with loads of success! #Staysafe.”
