Wishes pour in for KL Rahul on his 29th birthday

KL Rahul will be seen in action against Delhi Capitals today

On Sunday, April 18, Indian cricketer KL Rahul turned 29. The Punjab Kings captain received wishes from all over the place. The wicketkeeper batsman from Karnataka is currently in the Indian Premier League 2021 and will be seen in action on his birthday when he leads Punjab Kings against Delhi Capitals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. 

His franchise, Punjab Kings, wished KL Rahul with a post on their social media profile. They posted a picture in which there was a painting of Rahul with a look of a King while there was the real KL looking at the painting.

In the caption of the post, there was a quote. “Mirror mirror on the wall, we know he’s the KLassiest of ’em all, Happiest of birthdays to the one and only,” the caption read. 

Furthermore, they uploaded another post which was a video montage of all the best footage they had of Rahul. They put a caption to the video which read, “Blessing your feed with some wholesome #CaptainPunjab content.’ The social media team of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) also uploaded a post for the wicketkeeper batsman to wish him on his birthday. 


“Here’s wishing @klrahul11 – one of the most stylish batsmen going around – a very happy birthday,” BCCI wrote on their social media post. Another wish which was worth noting was the one from former Indian cricketer Dooda Ganesh. He uploaded an old picture of the batsman. He recalled the time he saw him at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.

“I saw this young boy for the first time in 2009 at the NCA and was impressed by the extra time he’d to play his shots. A few years later he won us a Ranji title and made it to the Indian team and hasn’t looked back. Happy birthday, @klrahul11 . Wishing you loads of runs,” Ganesh wrote. 

Rahul’s former IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore also posted an image of him playing during an IPL match from the 2016 season, when he played for his home city franchise. RCB sent out a reminder for their game against Punjab Kings as well. There were wishes from Shreyas Iyer and Yuvraj Singh as well.
