Not just Kohli’s Indian fans, but a number of cricketers — both former and current — took to social media to extol the former India captain. While a number of heartwarming greetings came, one of those that stood out the most was from Kohli’s teammate and current India cricketer Dinesh Karthik.
On the occasion of Kohli’s birthday, Karthik shared a picture of him with the iconic batter. In the caption, he wrote: “He’s the one who believes when no one else does! A very happy birthday to you.”

Kohli has been in phenomenal form in the T20 World Cup 2022, scoring 3 half-centuries in 4 matches while aggregating 220 runs in total. Also, Kohli has only been dismissed once in the 4 matches.
The right-handed batter is already the top-scoring player in the tournament and would look to further increase his tally of runs as India take on Zimbabwe in their final Group 2 game on Sunday.
