Exclusive: Virat Kohli wishes the legend, MS Dhoni on his birthday

Cricketing Fraternity takes to Twitter as we look at some of the wonderful wishes to the captain cool, MS Dhoni on his 38th birthday. 

Thala, Captain Cool, Ice Man, and the heart-throb of our generation has entered the 39th year of his life, and the entire cricketing fraternity can’t keep calm. Wishes poured in from cricketers across the globe, who have either played with him, under him or his well-wishers. 

His image of a long-haired, hard-hitting wicket-keeper batsman, who debuted 15 years back is still in my mind. Since then, he has transformed himself into the best captain, the best finisher, and the best wicket-keeper of this generation.
