While things may not have been as wishful for Ishant Sharma on his birthday after being unfit to play the ongoing Test against England at Oval owing to a niggle, Yuvraj Singh’s special wishes would have been a mood lifter for Sharma. In fact, the special wished wishes from India’s former player Yuvraj Singh was hilarious enough to leave all cricket fans into peals of laughter.
In a minute-long video where Yuvraj extended wishes to Ishant Sharma on his 33rd birthday, the former wished the Indian bowler emulating his speaking style and accent.
The clip started with a smirk in Ishant’s style following which Yuyraj said, “Yar lambu tera bday hai yar aj, Happy birthday to you brother. I hope you are well. Khoob sari wickets le, aur India ko jita ke laa” (Hey tall man, it is your birthday today. Here’s wishing you a very happy birthday, brother. Hope you ar doing well, take a lot of wickets and return to India with a win in the Test series against England)
“Tu bhi keh raha hoga, kya yar paji yar aap meri awaz nikal rahe ho, par teri awaaz aur meri awaaz to same hai yarr…heh! (You would be saying that I am imitating you. But you and I have got the same style bro)
In the ongoing series against England so far, Sharma had featured in three innings for India so far. During the same, he has scalped five wickets and returned with an economy of 3.10.
