Ahead of the fourth day's play between India and New Zealand in Mumbai, Virat Kohli wished a fan on his birthday as the video was shared on social media platform. Here's the clip:

India thrashed New Zealand by 372 runs on Day 4 of the second and final Test at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Monday morning (December 6). Resuming the penultimate day with the home side needing 5 more wickets to go 1-0 up in the series finale, R Ashwin and Jayant Yadav's four-fers led to the Kiwis being bundled out for 167 in less than a session to lose by a handsome margin.

It was a flawless Test match for Virat Kohli-led India, who opted to bat first and posted 325. Courtesy Mayank Agarwal's 150, India made 325 and bundled out the Kiwis for 62 to earn a huge first-innings lead. In their second essay, India declared at 276-7 whereas the Black Caps posted only 167 in the final innings to fall apart like nine pins in the series decider after a fighting draw in the first Test at Kanpur.

Before Day 4 commenced on Monday morning, Captain Kohli made the day of a fan who was waiting for Team India players before their entry to the ground.. As the fan was celebrating his birthday, the 33-year-old Kohli wished him and the video of the same has gone viral on social media platforms. Here's the clip:
