Indian men’s cricket team’s captain, Virat Kohli has turned a year older today. On his birthday, wishes have been pouring in from across the world. Now, Varun Dhawan also has sent out good wishes to the cool captain of Team India in a special way.
Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli turned 33 on Friday. One of the modern-day cricket greats, Kohli is currently leading the national side in the ongoing T20 World Cup where India sit in fourth spot in the Group 2 points table. Kohli will be looking to mark his birthday with a win over Scotland when the two sides clash in a Super 12 clash in Dubai on Friday. Pakistan currently top the group with four wins out of four. India lost their first two games in the tournament before winning the third.
The Virat Kohli-led side lost to Pakistan in their opening match by 10 wickets before New Zealand exposed the flaws in the Indian batting line-up during their eight-wicket win in Dubai.
However, the inaugural champions still have their semi final hopes alive after their 66-run thrashing of Afghanistan. India need to win both of their remaining games with a better net run-rate and hope for New Zealand’s defeat in at least one of their two remaining games.
Since, making his debut in 2008, Kohli has played 254 ODIs, 96 Tests, and 92 T20Is for the national side. He has enviable records in all the formats and is the only batsman to have a 50-plus average in all three formats of the game at the same time.

Meanwhile, Virat has been busy with the T20 World Cup in UAE and Anushka Sharma along with Vamika have been spending time with him there. Their photos from the Halloween celebration with other Team India players and their families had gone viral on social media recently.
