New Delhi: Amit Mishra turned 34 on Thursday, and in a belated birthday wish, former India opener Virender Sehwag hailed the leg-spinner as one of a kind bowler.

Sehwag, who wishes cricketers and famous personalities on their birthdays, wrote "Happy Birthday Amit Mishra, Nahi hai tujhsa koi Doosra. #LegSpinKeJalwe @MishiAmit" in a Twitter post today.

Mishra is considered as one of the most talented spinners India has ever produced. In the limited opportunities he was given, the Delhi cricketer has managed to impress everyone.

The Indian cricket board also posted a video, with the cricket team celebrating Mishra's birthday.

He has played 21 Tests, 36 ODIs and eight T20Is for India, and has taken 74, 64 and 14 wickets respectively.

Mishra is currently on national duty for the ongoing India-England series. The third match of the five-Test series will be played at Mohali, starting tomorrow.
