Current Indian cricket team skipper and batting maestro Virat Kohli is celebrating his 32nd birthday on November 5. On this special occasion, several cricketers including the former players leapt wishes for the ‘Modern Master’. The list of well-wishers included the likes of Yuvraj Singh, VVS Laxman, Ravi Shastri, Ishant Sharma and many more. 

Coming to his records, Virat Kohli is undoubtedly one of the best batsmen in the history of the game. His batting numbers also rightly suggest the same. He is one of the few current players going in the international circuit to have an average of over 50 across all three formats. His captaincy stats are also second to none as Virat Kohli holds the record for most Test wins by an Indian captain.

Now, let’s look at some of the top Twitter for Virat Kohli:
