Indian captain Virat Kohli has been celebrating his 31st birthday with a trip to Bhutan along with his wife Anushka Sharma. However, the wishes for the Delhi batsman have been pouring in for him on Twitter from all corners of the world. Both his Indian teammates, friends from IPL franchise RCB and fans have been tweeting relentlessly to get their message across to Kohli.
Kohli has been rested for the ongoing T20I series against Bangladesh given that he had not taken any rest after the World Cup and had led the team to a clean sweep win over West Indies in the Caribbean and then a 3-0 Test series win over South Africa. He will be returning to captain the team in the two Tests against Bangladesh with the first Test to be played from November 14.
Chahal wants Virat Kohli to keep scoring runs and appear on Chahal TV
Yuzvendra Chahal has been playing with Virat Kohli since his debut and even plays with him for the same IPL franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore. The duo shares a great rapport with one another and often joke with each other. This time as well, Chahal shared a quirky birthday wish for Kohli on Twitter and tweeted, “Happy B’day to the skipper, keep scoring tons and winning matches for India and get a chance to come on Chahal TV #HappyBirthdaySuperV”.

Yuzvendra Chahal recently was included in the Indian team for the Bangladesh T20I series and performed well. He picked one wicket, which would have been two if Krunal Pandya had held onto the catch of Mushfiqur Rahim, which would have turned the game on its head. But alas, he scored a brilliant unbeaten half-century and Bangladesh registered their first-ever win over India in the T20I format.
Virat Kohli has been under pressure to win an ICC trophy, despite his stellar record as captain in Tests and ODI bilateral series, he is yet to win any multi-nation trophy. India has lost the final of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 to Pakistan and semi-final of ICC World Cup 2019 under his captaincy, while he became the first Indian captain to win bilateral ODI series in South Africa and Australia.
