One of the most revered cricketers in the world and especially in India, MS Dhoni turns 38 years old today. The two-time World Cup winner is currently with Team India preparing for their ICC World Cup 2019 semi-final encounter against New Zealand at Old Trafford in Manchester.
Also, there were plans for his birthday to be celebrated after India registered a dominating win over Sri Lanka in their last league match in Headingley and ended up at the no.1 spot on the points table. This was all thanks to centuries from Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. Rohit was also present in the post-match press conference and had some witty answers when asked about MS Dhoni’s birthday plans.
Photo woto bhejenge aapko, says Rohit to journalist
During the chat with media after the win over Sri Lanka, Rohit Sharma looked pleased and was answering questions with his usual wit. At that time, it was not clear which team India will face in semi-finals and at what venue. During the tête-à-tête, a journalist asked Rohit how they were planning to celebrate MS Dhoni’s birthday.
To this, Rohit said that Dhoni’s birthday would mostly be celebrated on the bus, as they don’t know whether they are going to Manchester or Birmingham. He also said they will look to cut the cake during the journey to either of the venues. Rohit also added that they would send pictures to media.
His words in the video were, “Birthday mein kya bola jata hai? Happy birthday? Yehi tho bola jata hai. (What do you tell someone on their birthday? Happy birthday only right?)”
“Par ha, abhi kal travel day hai humara and pata nahi hum Manchester jaa rahe hai ya Birmingham jaa rahe hai. Tho uss hisab se bus drive mein shayad cake cutting hoga”. (We have our travel day tomorrow and we don’t know we are going to Manchester or Birmingham. Accordingly, we will cut the cake during the bus drive).
“Photo woto bhejenge aapko (We will send you the photos),” Rohit added much to the laughter in the room.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma became the first batsman in World Cup history to score five centuries in the same edition. He broke the record of Kumar Sangakkara, who had hit four hundreds in 2015 World Cup. With this century, he also equalled Sachin Tendulkar’s record of six centuries in World Cup history and also became the highest run-getter in the ongoing tournament with 647 runs.
