Team India youngsters, who play a key role and have been a part of the team across formats – pacer Jasprit Bumrah, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and Shreyas Iyer celebrated their birthday on Sunday, December 6, during the ongoing India tour of Australia.

Sunday also seems to be an auspicious day for Team India, as close to five cricketers, including a former player, celebrated their birthdays. Other than the trio mentioned above, Karun Nair and former player RP Singh also marked their birthdays and the cricket fraternity and fans have flooded them with wishes.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wished them through their official social media handles. On Instagram, they posted a short video clip which showed Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, who celebrated his birthday a day earlier, and Bumrah cutting cakes.

The video was captioned, “December 5️ - Shikhar Dhawan, December 6️ - Shreyas & Bumrah Birthdays and series win celebrations with a customary cake cutting  #TeamIndia.”

In the video, the trio cut cakes and fed each other a bite while the team and others congratulated them. In another Tweet, BCCI posted a photo of the Jadeja, Bumrah and Iyer. The tweet was captioned, “Wishing #TeamIndia trio of @Jaspritbumrah93, @imjadeja and @ShreyasIyer15 a very happy birthday.”

Former Indian cricketer Virendra Sehwag took to the micro blogging site and wrote, “Today’s Date 6/12- Half Dozen, One Dozen. And a day when nearly a dozen really wonderful cricketers were born. Happy Birthday to @Jaspritbumrah93, @imjadeja, @ShreyasIyer15, @karun126, @rpsingh. Have a great life ahead boys!”

Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar also wished Bumrah and Iyer on the occasion.

Harbhajan Singh posted a series of tweets to greet the players. Calling Bumrah “a champion bowler, game changer, yorker king”, he wished him on the special day.
