The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, is one of the most celebrated personalities in the world right now. The date of 2nd November marks the birthday of the Prince of Indian cricket. As a result, Twitter clogged in with birthday wishes for the talismanic Indian batsman who has taken the art of batting into a new high.

Be it former cricketers to the present ones, Bollywood celebrities or prominent businessmen, there were hardly few who did not spare a moment to type those 140 characters, wishing VK on his special.

As they say, one cannot reach great heights without making a few enemies or bitter rivalries on the way, the few who did not may fall into the ‘few’ category who chose not to wish Virat Kohli on his 29th birthday. Here’s a look at some of them.

Even though India performed exceptionally well in all formats under the partnership of Kohli and Kumble, all wasn’t going down smoothly inside the dressing room for India. Kohli did not entertain the hard taskmaster attitude of Coach Kumble and also had a soft corner for Team Director Ravi Shastri.

After a month-long fiasco, better known as the Kohli-Kumble saga, the leading wicket-taker for India chose to resign from his coveted position citing out the untenable relationship with the captain. No prizes for guessing there were no wishes for Kohli from the account of ‘Jumbo’.
