"Happy Birthday Rahul Bhai. Thank you for your encouragement and for being a great role model for all the budding cricketers out there," tweeted Kohli, who was recently appointed the One-day International (ODI) and T20 International skipper after Mahendra Singh Dhoni stepped down.
"Happy birthday to the 'Wall of Indian Cricket', #RahulDravid!," tweeted former teammate and batting icon Sachin Tendulkar. Along with V.V.S. Laxman and Sourav Ganguly, the four formed the famed 'Fab 4' during their playing days.
"He played in the V. But was the biggest C. Commitment, Class, Consistency, Care. Proud to have played together. Happy Birthday #RahulDravid," read Virender Sehwag's ever-cheeky message.
