Time with family, date with Anushka Sharma, cake massage by team: How Virat Kohli celebrated his 28th birthday

Virat Kohli's birthday celebrations panned from Delhi to Rajkot.

Virat Kohli turned 28 on Saturday, November 5, and apart from spending time with his family and teammates, Kohli also had time to spend some quality time with his rumoured girlfriend Anushka Sharma. Kohli received millions of wishes from his fans on his birthday, and had the company of the Bollywood star on the special day. That was the second time the two have been pictured together after they were spotted at an Indian Super League game on Diwali.

Kohli had his share of celebrations at home, too, where he cut a cake with blue icing highlighting the Indian colours and had “Kohli” written on it including the number ’18’, as per his jersey.

The Indian cricket team arrived in Rajkot for the first of a five-Test series against England, starting November 8, at Hotel Imperial with his teammates. In what started like an usual affair on Virat's birthday, ended with a wild cake massage.

It was all peaceful when Kohli cut the first slice and offered to chief coach Anil Kumble.

R Ashwin, in the meantime, had begun with his move as he slowly took some cake in his hand and offered some to Kohli and rest to his face.

Virat took an early morning flight from Delhi – where he was born and lives – for Rajkot to join his teammates and start preparations for the England series.

Umesh Yadav applied the first layer of cream and bread on Kohli’s neck. Ajinkya Rahane followed and rest was a mess!

From Hardik Pandya to the support staff to some more from Ashwin, everyone had their piece sitting pretty on India’s Test skipper’s face.
