Virat Kohli Birthday: 'You're one hell of a cricket player': AB de Villiers Sent A Special Birthday Message To King Kohli
Indian batting superstar Virat Kohli is celebrating his 34th birthday on Saturday. The former captain was born on November 5, 1988, in Delhi. Kohli will be celebrating his birthday with the Indian cricket team in Melbourne, as the Men in Blue are in the city to take part in their final Group 2 match of the Super 12 stage against Zimbabwe on Sunday.
Virat enjoys great popularity all around the world. Even before the start of the day, social media has been buzzing with reactions from fans to experts and cricketers around the world. Among many, his friend and former Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate Ab de Villiers also joined the bandwagon and expressed his feelings and admiration for Kohli.
Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers share a great bond with each other and have been the best of mates on and off the field for many years. In a video shared by the RCB’s official Twitter handle, the South African legend can be heard praising Virat as a cricketer and as a human. He said: "Hello V, my biscuit. I hope you are doing well. I am currently in Bangalore. It’s quite ironic because I am sitting here and sending this message just to wish you a happy birthday on the fifth of November. I hope you have a fantastic day. You are one hell of a cricket player. But you are a much better human being. Thank you very much for your friendship. Thanks for being a great teammate and just a great man overall. Happy birthday, my bud, and all the very best with the World Cup to you and the whole Indian team. I really hope you go all the way and have fun. Maybe you find South Africa in the final. It will be very entertaining. But happy birthday, Virri, have a great day, and I am thinking of you. Cheers!"
