As former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni turns 36 on Friday, teammate Yuvraj Singh took to social media and posted a picture with ‘Captain Cool’. The left-handed batsman wrote, “Many happy returns of the day to Mr. Helicopter @mahi7781 have a great day buddy, the cake awaits you 🤣🎂 🚁#happybirthday #cakesmash .”
The Indian cricket team is currently in West Indies for a limited-overs series and both Dhoni and Yuvraj are the most experienced cricketers in the squad. While Dhoni had a decent hit in the five-ODI series, Yuvraj could only manage 57 runs in the three innings he played.
Yuvraj and Dhoni have been one of the finest pairs in the middle-order for India. Together they have scripted many famous wins for India. The two played a key role in India’s triumph in 2007 T20 World Cup and 2011 World Cup.

Known for his helicopter shot, former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has finished the job for India several times. One of the most memorable moments came back in 2011 when he launched one into the stands, and sealed India’s emphatic win in the World Cup at Wankhede stadium.
