India opener Smriti Mandhana celebrates her 22nd birthday today and Twitter was filled with wishes from former and current players.

Sachin Tendulkar, a former opener himself, wrote, “Many, many happy returns of the day, @mandhana_smriti. Keep smiling!”

Former opener and captain of the Indian side Anjum Chopra also took to Twitter to wish Mandhana.

Surya Kumar Yadav, who had a prolific run opening the batting for Mumbai Indians, tagged her as ‘one of the best International Women cricketers’ in his greetings.

Mandhana rose to stardom during India's run to the final of the 2017 Women's World Cup, starting the campaign with a half-century and century in the first two games.

Apart from her exploits in the 50-over format, Mandhana has also carved out a reputation of being a dynamic opener in the T20 format. In 42 matches for India, she has scored 857 runs with five half-centuries at strike-rate of 113.06.

The opener is currently in England for the upcoming season of the Kia Super League, after she was signed by the defending champions Western Storm last month.
