December 14 (Thursday) had come up with the dual birthday celebration in the Indian cricket camp. The left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav and bowling coach Bharat Arun have turned 24 and 55 respectively on that very day.
Arun has been associated with the Indian cricket team since July 2017 whereas Kuldeep has made his international debut earlier this year against Australia in Dharamsala. Soon after the birthday celebration, pictures were uploaded on various social media sites.
“A cake feast in Vizag to the birthday boys #TeamIndia,” chief coach Ravi Shastri wrote on his official Twitter page.
From the images, one thing is pretty clear that Team India kept up their tradition of smashing cake on the face.
BCCI’s official Twitter handle also wished the duo by posting a picture with a caption: “Birthday greetings to #TeamIndia's Bowling Coach B. Arun and our hat-trick boy @imkuldeep18”.
Expressing his gratitude, Kuldeep tweeted: “Thank you to all the fans who wished me on my birthday, and to my teammates for this cake facial today. #blessed”.
After a demoralizing loss in the ODI series opener against Sri Lanka at Dharamsala, India bounced back emphatically in the second ODI at Mohali with Rohit Sharma notching up his record-shattering third ODI double century. The three-match series is now levelled at 1-1 with the decider heading to Vishakhapatnam.
