India captain Virat Kohli turned 33 on Friday (November 5) and wishes started pouring in on social media from his friends and well-wishers. Fast bowler Mohammed Siraj also tweeted a heartfelt post for Kohli and attached a video.
Siraj wrote that not everyone is as lucky as him to have an elder brother like Virat. The speedster thanked the India captain for coming into his life and supporting him in ups and downs.
"Not everyone is as lucky as me to be blessed with an elder brother like you. Thank you so much for coming into my life and standing by my side through thick and thin. I hope you get all that you truly deserve. Happy Birthday king ???? @imVkohli," he tweeted.
The 27-year-old has often admitted that he owes his career to Kohli who constantly backed him. "Virat bhaiya always says - 'tere paas ability hai, tu kar sakta hai, tere paas ability hai kisi bhi wicket pe khelne ka, tu kisi bhi batsman ko out kar sakta hai' (You have the ability, the ability play on any wicket and get rid of any batsman)," Siraj had said earlier this year.
Siraj has been playing with Virat for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in IPL before finding a spot in the Indian cricket team. His performance in Test cricket has made him among the first choice bowlers on the side.
