The likes of Umar Akmal, Shoaib Akhtar, Junaid Khan, Salman Butt and Mir Hamza congratulated the veteran and want to him make the most of this opportunity. A couple of cricketers also extended their best wishes to Usman Shinwari who made the cut.
Through a video, Shreyas Iyer thanked everyone who wished him on his birthday. In the other trends, VVS Laxman shared the story of young, brave Om Prakash and was all praise for him. Sanju Samson seemed excited about being in Thiruvananthapuram, his home town, for the next T20I against West Indies.
