Due to the advent of social media, a post or statement from big names takes no time to become viral, and they start becoming the talk of the town among netizens. The same incident happened again between Virat Kohli and former ace spinner Anil Kumble. Former Indian head coach celebrated his 50th birthday on 17th October, and he drew innumerable wishes from the world. One of the finest spinners in the world is the highest wicket-taker for India in both formats.
The star spinner drew curtains on his international career with 619 wickets in Tests and 336 in ODI format. He is currently in UAE as he is the head coach of KL Rahul-led Kings XI Punjab. He remains the only Indian bowler to name a prestigious 10-wicket haul in an innings in Test cricket. He also led the national side for 14 Tests and one ODI. Though the birthday man received wished from all corners of the world, there is one wish that has turned all the heads.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who is currently leading Royal Challengers Bangalore in UAE, wished him on Twitter. He wrote, “Wish you a very happy birthday Anil Bhai @anilkumble1074. Have a great day.” While Kumble thanked him for the wishes, people on the internet have been going gaga over this incident, and feel that Kohli’s account has been hacked by someone.
For the information, Anil Kumble’s tenure as head coach of Team India saw a shocking end. He stepped down from his position just two days after India lost to Pakistan in the finals of the Champions Trophy in 2017. While resigning from his position, he made clear that his relations with Indian skipper Kohli were ‘untenable.’ This is why after the incident, Kumble decided to move on with his life.
Here are some of the best reactions to the Kohli tweet

Though KXIP have been languishing at the bottom of the points table, they can try to do better in the coming days under the guidance of Kumble. They have won only two out of their eight matched played so far. On the other hand, Kohli’s RCB is having a great campaign this season as they are currently placed at number three position in the points table.
