Former Indian cricketer and current Member of Parliament, Gautam Gambhir celebrated his 38th birthday on Monday with his former teammates VVS Laxman, RP Singh and Irfan Pathan. The former KKR captain was captured cutting a cake that his teammates smeared on his face. Gambhir shared the video on Twitter with a lovely caption. He described himself as a decent batsman in Hindi, while quite amusingly describing the entire incident as "but when 2 superb left-arm swing bowlers are hunting along with a champion slip fielder on a creamy pitch, then one is bound to get plastered!!!"
Batsman तो मैं ठीक ही था but when 2 superb left-arm swing bowlers are hunting along with a champion slip fielder on a creamy pitch, then one is bound to get plastered!!!

In the video, you can see VVS Laxman, RP Singh, Irfan Pathan and television anchor Jatin Sapru singing Happy Birthday. RP Singh teased Gambhir when Irfan was feeding him the cake by saying that he's still fit and he's just started doing yoga. Sapru added that Gambhir does '100 Suryanamaskar's every day. 'As soon as Gambhir made it live, fans appreciated his sweet caption and flooded his Twitter account with messages.
