With their impressive match-winning combinations, both hitters have led the Indian side to victory on numerous occasions.
Yuvraj and his wife, Hazel Keech, welcomed their first child, a baby boy, in January.
Wishing Yuvraj on his new journey as a parent, batting legend Kohli added:
“Now we’re both parents and know what a blessing that is. I wish you all the happiness, beautiful memories and blessings in this new journey.”
Yuvraj praised Kohli in the letter for his dedication and discipline to his art, praising him as an inspiration to future generations.
“Virat, I’ve seen you grow as a cricketer and as a person. From that young boy in the nets who would walk shoulder-to-shoulder with the legends of Indian cricket. You’re now a legend yourself leading the way for a new generation. Your discipline in the nets, passion on the field. And dedication to the sport inspires every young kid in this country to pick up the bat. And dream of putting on the blue jersey one day,” wrote Yuvraj in the letter.
Both Yuvraj and Kohli have a close association with the sports brand PUMA.
