Indian cricket legend MS Dhoni celebrated his 39th birthday today as wishes continue to pour in across the world for the former Indian skipper.

Indian men’s cricket team players such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravi Ashwin to name a few have all sent their good wishes for Captain Cool Dhoni. Here’s a look at a few of those: 

Cooling off with Mr. Cool. Happy Birthday @msdhoniRohit Sharma wrote in his Tweet.

Happy b’ day Mahi Bhai. Wish you good health and happiness always. God bless you,” skipper  Virat Kohli tweeted.

Inspiration to his Army and Decimation to the Army beyond the Enemy lines. Couldn’t find a better phrase to define @msdhoni, happy birthday Mahi Bhai, have a great day and continue to inspire all of us.” Ashwin tweeted.

Dhoni has represented India in 350 ODIs with his highest score being 183 against Sri Lanka. He is the only Indian captain to win all the major ICC trophies( 50 over World Cup, T20 World Cup, and Champions Trophy).

Over the years he has cemented himself as one of the best wicketkeeper-batsman around the world.

His agility behind the stumps has given India many breakthroughs as the Ranchi based wicket-keeper has done the most number of stumping in International Cricket. 

In December 2014, he announced his retirement from Test after playing 90 Tests and scoring 4,876 runs at an average of 38.09.

Under his leadership, Chennai Super Kings have clinched IPL trophy thrice. Dhoni was all set to play for this upcoming season of IPL 2020. However, the cash-rich league got suspended due to COVID-19.

The 39-year-old is currently enjoying some time away from the game. He last played competitive cricket during the 2019 World Cup.
