Team India captain Virat Kohli is celebrating his 33rd birthday today. Virat was born on 5 November 1988 in Delhi. It is a difficult time for Virat Kohli. Virat’s bat has not scored a single century since 2019, while under his captaincy, Team India has not won any ICC trophy so far. In the first two matches of the current T20 World Cup, Team India had to face defeat against Pakistan and New Zealand. Since then Virat has also been surrounded by criticism. Virender Sehwag has also given a special advice while congratulating him on his birthday.
Sehwag wrote on Twitter, ‘Tough times don’t last forever, but strong people do. Happy birthday to Virat Kohli. Virat has already announced before this T20 World Cup that this will be his last T20 tournament as captain. Virat will remain the captain of the ODI and Test teams, but will leave the captaincy of the T20 International team after the T20 World Cup.
Apart from Sehwag, Mohammad Siraj has congratulated Virat on his birthday in an emotional way. Siraj has described him as his elder brother.
Not everyone is as lucky as me to be blessed with an elder brother like you. Thank you so much for coming into my life and standing by my side through thick and thin. I hope you get all that you truly deserve. Happy Birthday king @imVkohli pic.twitter.com/pTn8NBZrHh

Team India has to play its fourth match in the T20 World Cup today. India has just one win in the first three matches. It is very difficult for India to reach the semi-finals. India will have to win all its matches, apart from keeping an eye on the results of matches in New Zealand and Afghanistan.
