Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma led wishes for the Indian cricket team vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, who turned 30 on Wednesday.
Rahane, who impressively led the Rajasthan Royals (RR) into the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 playoffs on their comeback after a two-year absence, will next be seen in action mid-June.
Rahane will be leading the Indian cricket team against Afghanistan in a one-off Test starting June 14 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. It is a historic Test as the Afghans are making their debut in the conventional form of the game.
Taking to social media, Tendulkar was gracious in his message as he wrote, “Wishing a very happy birthday to one of the most hardworking, disciplined and sincere cricketers I have come across. May you have a wonderful year ahead. My best wishes to you always, @ajinkyarahane88.”
Others too chipped in to wish the batsman. Check out some of the best wishes below:
