Today is the birthday of Indian team batsman Virat Kohli. Kohli was born on 5 November 1988. Kohli is playing a match against South Africa at Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata on his birthday.

Kohli’s birthday in Sachin’s life is such that he can never forget because on this day Sachin got one of the most precious gifts of his life.
Sachin has 49 centuries to his name in ODIs. Kohli has scored 48 centuries in ODIs. He is just one step away from reaching Sachin’s level. Everyone is hopeful that Kohli will do this work at the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata. Kohli scored the first century of his international career on this very ground.
That’s why it’s special
Kohli’s birthday is special for Sachin because on this day he got the biggest happiness of his life. On Kohli’s birthday i.e. 5th November in the year 1989, Sachin got the news that he had been selected in Team India. At that time the team was going on a tour of Pakistan. Sachin was selected for the first time in Team India for this tour. That’s why Kohli’s birthday is special for Sachin and he can never forget it. After this, everyone knows the position Sachin achieved in international cricket. Sachin had told on his very first tour that he has come to rule world cricket. On this tour, apart from playing the balls of great spinners like Abdul Qadir, he played bowlers like Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram and hit them hard.
