Watch: Shubman Gill's Birthday Cake Smashed On His Face As Celebration Video Goes Viral

Shubman Gill, who open the innings for team India, spent his 24th birthday with his teammates on the Indian cricket team. Kuldeep Yadav, who is also on his team, posted a video of the cake-cutting ceremony on social media.

The India spinner also posted a picture of Shubman's face with cake all over it. On the film, the rising star could be seen cutting the cake while his teammates stood around him. Ishan Kishan, who is a close friend of Shubman, was seen setting up the ceremony for cutting the cake.

In the Indian team, smashing the cake in the face of the birthday boy is almost a tradition these days. We've seen this happen to players like MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma, among others, over the years. Last Friday, it was Shubman's turn to get cake all over him.

When Shubman returned to cricket for the Asia Cup 2023, he did not get off to a good start. In India's first game against Pakistan in Kandy, he only got 10 runs off 32 balls. He took some time to get used to the weather and the pace of the game, but a peach from Haris Rauf that hit his stumps was the end of him.

Gill played a beautiful 62-ball 67 against Nepal in the next game to get back on track. His innings had 8 fours and 1 six, and he played them with a lot of force.

But that Nepal wasn't very good. Pakistan is a very different animal. It's important to do well against them, so Gill must plan to do so when he bats against the archrivals in the Super 4 match at Colombo on September 4.

In case you didn't know, Gill also set the record for the fastest player to hit 1500 runs in ODIs. It only took him 29 games to get there. He is a good batter and will be an Indian hitting star in the future. He already has a double hundred and hundreds of other records, so he has what it takes to be a star.

Gill needs to make sure he plays his best in big events like the Asia Cup and the World Cup. This will help his career and, more importantly, the team.
