One of India’s best all-rounders, Yuvraj Singh has turned a year older and is celebrating his 40th birthday today and social media has been buzzing with amazing birthday wishes and messages for the legendary all-rounder. From cricketers, celebrities to fans, everyone is making sure to make his birthday even more special for him.
Among many, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli also took to his social media and shared a heartfelt birthday wish for his former teammate Yuvraj Singh. Virat came up with one of the best birthday wishes for India’s finest all-rounders, as he shared a hilarious anecdote, giving an insight into their long-time friendship.
Virat Kohli took to his Instagram stories and shared a hilarious video, where he spoke about his early memories as an Under-19 graduate and how Yuvraj Singh made him feel comfortable in the senior team. He revealed:
“I had come in from the Under-19 World Cup; he welcomed me very nicely, made me comfortable, started joking around with me, and we liked similar kind of food. We are both Punjabis, love Punjabi music, getting nice clothes, shoes (chuckles); all these kinds of things have remained common over the years. We used to go out and do quite a bit of shopping together in a group obviously; so the likes were quite similar.”
Virat then revealed how on a tour to Sri Lanka, Yuvi planned to cycle from Dambulla to Colombo (almost 160 km), leaving everyone in splits. He revealed:
“We were in Dambulla; it was a couple of days off a match and literally at 3 or 3:30 in the morning he goes, ‘We are gonna ride these bicycles to Colombo’ and I clearly remember we all fell down laughing on the floor because it was just outrageous. We had a match in two days’ time.”
Kohli also shared some of their pictures together in the Indian team. Sharing these pictures, Virat extended his best wishes for Yuvraj Singh. He said: “Happy birthday Yuvi Pa! Lots of peace, happiness and prosperity to you and lots of love always. And my best wishes to you.”
