Virat Kohli celebrated his 31st birthday on November 5, Tuesday. Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh took to Twitter to wish his old teammate Kohli. Yuvraj posted old photos of the two dancing together and one from the World Cup 2011. In the birthday wish, Yuvraj wrote, "Yeh bhi din they ! Aur ek aaj ka din hai ! Jahan bhi ho khush raho , God bless you always ! Happy birthday".

The Indian skipper now replied to Yuvraj's birthday wish writing "Uparwaale ke diye sab din mehr hain paji. Rab rakha. Lots of love to you always". It has put a full stop on speculations being made by social media that there is something wrong between both the players.

Yuvraj Singh’s tweet, however, didn’t get down well with many of the cricket fans as they felt there was a sarcastic dig in his post. Social media users started drawing conclusions saying Yuvraj was miffed up with Virat Kohli as he was left out of the Indian team in 2017 because he failed to attain the yo-yo test passing mark. Yuvraj, recently, took a dig at the Indian team management for their yo-yo fitness test eligibility enforcement.

Some of the fans' reactions.

Kohli has been rested from current India vs Bangladesh three-T20I series. The 31-year-old went on a vacation with Bollywood actress and his wife Anushka Sharma. He will return to the side in the upcoming two-Test series against Bangladesh starting November 14.

On the other hand, Yuvraj is playing franchise cricket post-retirement. The two-time World Cup winner will play for Maratha Arabians in T10 League 2019 in Abu Dhabi.
