The former batsman took to Twitter and posted a candid picture with the Indian skipper on his special day. “Wishing you a very happy birthday Virat! Continue scoring runs and leading India with the same passion! All the best” read the caption of the picture. The greeting will certainly be heart-warming for Virat as he idolizes Tendulkar and has expressed his admiration for the latter on many occasions.

The duo also share a great rapport and many also consider Virat as the successor of Sachin. Ever since the retirement of the Little Master in 2013, Virat has stepped into his boots and carried his legacy forward. The 31-year old rose through ranks very quickly and has already crashed many prestigious records set by Indian legend. However, the fans are eagerly waiting to see whether Kohli and surpass Tendulkar’s tally of 100 international centuries or not. At 31, Virat has already plundered 69 centuries and looks to go past Tendulkar too.
