India captain Virat Kohli turned 30 on Monday with wishes came pouring in from all corners of the world for India’s milestone man who has had yet another fantastic year with the bat. Kohli has had a record-breaking year in many ways, especially in ODI cricket where he recently became the fastest batsman to surpass the 10,000 run-mark. The Delhi dasher has cemented his legacy as one of the greatest players of all time.
The India captain has been rested from the Twenty20 International series against the Windies, which means his teammates will be unable to carry on with their cake smearing session, something of a tradition for the Indian team. Fans, cricketers — past and present — all took to Twitter to wish the Indian run-machine on his 30th birthday.
