Virat Kohli celebrated his 31st birthday on Tuesday and his fans flooded social media with heartwarming wishes for their favourite cricketer. Also, the under-fire wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant took a funny route in order to wish the Indian skipper and ended up getting trolled by his fans.

Rishabh Pant is currently going through a poor form and is unable to score runs with his willow. After the World Cup, the fans raised their voices in order to bring him in the team as a permanent wicketkeeper in place of MS Dhoni. But, in a span of four months his inability to score runs has turned the tables against him.

And, now Indian fans want some other wicketkeeper to replace the underperforming Rishabh Pant. Also, it is expected that there is very less time left for him in order to prove his worth because the Indian selectors are no short of wicketkeepers for Team India.

Rishabh Pant wishes Virat Kohli on his birthday

The young gloveman took to his Twitter handle and shared a funny caption to wish Virat Kohli in which he wrote, “Happy birthday chachaaa@imVkohli always keep smiling,”

Here is the tweet

Meanwhile, the tweet didn’t go down well with Indian cricket fans went on to troll him for his poor form with the bat and some people even asked him to concentrate on his batting.

Here are the reactions from the fans 

The Delhiite is currently part of the Indian squad that is playing the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh. In the first T20I, Pant scored only 27 runs in 26 balls and was also involved in making wrong calls during the match. He committed quite a few errors and the biggest out of those came in the 10th over when Chahal appealed for an LBW against Mushfiqur Rahim that was denied by the umpire. But, when Chahal asked Rishabh in order to take a review, the wicketkeeper gave his denial.

Later on, in replays, it was clearly visible that the batsman was out. Moreover, Rahim went onto play a knock of unbeaten 60 runs and emerged as the Man of The Match.
