Former India cricketer and head coach, Anil Kumble turned 50 years old on Saturday, October 17, 2020. Wishes poured in for the highest wicket-taker in India's Test and ODI history and skipper Virat Kohli was among them.

Kohli and Kumble have worked together before the latter resigned from his head coach post after India's Champions Trophy 2017 defeat. There was news of a rift between them and they couldn't operate the team together because of differences.

"Wish you a very happy birthday Anil Bhai @anilkumble1074. Have a great day", wrote Virat on Twitter.

Anil Kumble responded to the wish and thanked him. "Thanks, Virat," he wrote.
