Clearly a favourite among his his teammates, a wave of other former Team India stars' wishes followed. Here's what Robin Uthappa wrote:

Sunrisers Hyderabad cricketer Yusuf Pathan too wished a happy birthday to Harbhajan Singh:

"Wishing @harbhajan_singh Bhajju pa, Happy Birthday Have a wonderful year ahead, best wishes." 

Harbhajan's birthday just adds to what is an intensely Cricket-filled atmosphere, with the World Cup ongoing. Additionally, Harbhajan was also a part of the World Cup 2011 winning squad. On June 25, Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh came out to relieve India's first ever World Cup win in 1983. The duo posted the picture of Kapil Dev and Mohinder (Jimmy) Amarnath posing with the World Cup trophy at the Lord's balcony.
