Indian team captain Rohit Sharma turned 36 on Sunday. The dynamic right-handed hitter has been entertaining fans since his international debut under MS Dhoni in the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup in 2007. On his big day, his fans and fellow cricketers took to social media to wish them their birthday. But some of them have gone viral on social media.
Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh shared a video posted a hilarious collage on Twitter. He said the Mumbai Indians skipper should be proud of how far he has come.
“Happy birthday my brother, from being a youngster in the team when I first met you and now leading the team, you have done well and you should be proud of how far you have come. I hope you will score tons of runs and win many trophies this year! Lots of love,” Yuvraj on Twitter.
