Record-breaking Kohli turns 29

The Indian skipper Virat Kohli turns 29 today and despite the Indian team coming up short against New Zealand in the 2nd T20I at Rajkot on Saturday, Kohli had a lot to celebrate and Indian team members ensured the loss did not take away any shine off their skipper’s birthday blast.

As has been the norm within the team for quite some time now, Kohli was smeared with the birthday cake after the cake-cutting. Kohli has had a fantastic year both as a skipper and a batsman. Kohli led the team to a remarkable nine-match winning streak in ODIs, equalling MS Dhoni’s record of most number of consecutive wins as captain.

Against Sri Lanka, Kohli became the first Indian captain to tour-wash an opponent as India finished 3-0 in Tests, 5-0 in ODIs and 1-0 in the T20I.

He became the fastest to 9000 runs (194 innings) and sixth Indian to do recently and also toppled Ricky Ponting to become the player with most ODI centuries (32), only behind Sachin Tendulkar (49). With 1,460 runs this year so far, he is also the captain with most runs in a calendar year. After 4-1 ODI series win over Australia, Kohli-led India became the first team to claim the top spot in both Test and ODI rankings.

Here is how he celebrated his birthday:
