Shikhar Dhawan who turned 32 on 5th December responded to a funny birthday wish from former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag. Dhawan had a pretty good day on the field. He scored a fifty on the fourth day of the final Test in Delhi, also celebrated the special day by reaching 2000 runs in Tests.
The Delhi lad had received a lot of fo wishes from his teammates and former cricketers. One of them came from Sehwag who was at his best with the humor. It was a typical 'Viru' wish.
Wishing Dhawan on his birthday, Sehwag wrote, “Happy Birthday Shika The One , as angrez commentators call . May you be "The One" who rescues Team India whenever needed and lay foundation for many victories @SDhawan25,” with a photo which shows an imposter of Shikhar Dhawan.

The Indian opener also had a laugh about the Tweet. He appreciated Sehwag's effort of searching the perfect picture to wish him. Replying to Sehwag, Dhawan wrote, “HHahah thanks bhaiya for ur wishes, picture badi chun ke lagaayi hai aapne (you have selected the picture after much deliberation).”

Dhawan had also posted a video where he thanked his fans. Earlier he had said in the press conference that Sri Lankan player's struggle with the poor quality air in Delhi might be genuine.
"It is possible (that their discomfort is genuine)," Dhawan said. "Now only they (Sri Lankans) know (if their concerns have been genuine). Maybe in Sri Lanka, the pollution is not that high. There are more beaches in Sri Lanka. It's natural that coastal areas won't have so much air pollution. Of course, they may be feeling discomfort. And it is not as if there is no pollution. I won't hide that. It is what it is. Maybe they are feeling it more, I don't know. But I still insist playing is our farz and karm [the two words loosely translate to duty and deeds but mean much more], which we should do. They must be feeling it (discomfort), though."
