Dhoni cut his birthday cake with his India teammates as well as his wife Sakshi and daughter Ziva in company. India captain Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma were also present.

There was another reason for celebrations as the former Indian captain on Friday created yet another record of playing 500 International games for his country.

Dhoni played 90 Tests for India in which he captained the country in 66 Tests, whereas so far he has played 318 ODIs and 92 T20Is. Dhoni already holds the record of captaining his country in most T20I games, that is 72.
