Ravindra Jadeja and Karun Nair celebrated their birthday in style on Tuesday when the entire Indian cricket team came together to mark the special occasion.

The celebration took place at the team hotel in Mumbai where two cakes were arranged for the cricketers and after the cake was cut, the teammates went on to smear the cake on the face of both the cricketers.

Earlier in the day, Rohit Sharma made fun of his teammate on Twitter as he urged Jadeja to reveal his actual age, which he believes is not 28.

Virender Sehwag was not far behind as he poked fun at Jadeja’s famous sword-wielding talent and asked him to swing the knife as a sword while cutting his birthday cake.

Ravindra Jadeja was Man-of-the-Match in India’s win in Mohali where Nair made his Test debut. Jadeja contributed both with bat and ball picking up a match haul of four wickets and scored 90 in the first innings.

On the other hand, Karun Nair will be looking to keep his place in the team, and more so after Ajinkya Rahane was ruled out of the series due to an avulsion fracture on his right index finger.

The Indian cricket team is currently in Mumbai for the fourth Test of their 5-match series and they will be looking to take an unassailable 3-0 lead with a victory against the visitors.
