Former India cricketer, Virender Sehwag took it to Twitter to wish current skipper, Virat Kohli, who turned 30 on Monday (November 5th).

Virat Kohli is a leader, on the field and off it.

Meanwhile, the right-handed batsman has been rested from the T20Is against the Windies. However, Kohli has been in phenomenal form over the last few years and now has been busy breaking records at will. Currently, he is leading the Indian side in all the three formats.

For him, the journey began when he helped India win the U-19 World Cup in Malaysia in 2008. Later, the current Indian captain entered the setup, and there was no looking back since then. He has come a long way and has been dominating all three formats.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli reached a remarkable milestone recently when he notched up 10,000 runs in ODIs.

Of late, Virat became the fastest batsman to achieve the feat against the Windies in Visakhapatnam ODI. Virat surpassed the Indian legend, Sachin Tendulkar by scoring his 10,000th runs in his 205 innings, as Sachin took 259 innings to cross the landmark.

Moreover, Virat Kohli slammed three consecutive centuries against the Windies in the first three ODIs of the five-match series, as he scored 140, 157* and 107, respectively. Meanwhile, the 30-year-old became the thirteenth overall and fifth Indian batsman to join the elite class. Previously, Sachin Tendulkar (18,426), Sourav Ganguly (11,221), Rahul Dravid (10,768) and MS Dhoni (10,123).

Meanwhile, Virender Sehwag poured wishes on Kohli on the auspicious occasion.
