Kohli was greeted with a special wish from his former India and RCB team-mate, Yuvraj Singh, who posted a photo of the two players together and captioned it, ‘Janamdin mubarak ho King Kohli @imVkohli! Wishing the great Indian batsman a very Happy Birthday! Jahan bhi ho khush raho, chhake chauke maarte raho all the best for the playoffs!

There were wishes from other great cricketers such as Suresh Raina, Irfan Pathan, VVS Laxman, Anil Kumble as well.
