Ace Indian tennis star Sania Mirza turned a year older on Friday. The former world number one celebrated her 33rd birthday and fans took to social media to extend their warm wishes on her special occassion.
However, what caught the eyes was the birthday wish from Sania's 'dearest friend' Yuvraj Singh and the Indian tennis star's reply to the same.
Taking to his official Twitter handle, Yuvraj refered Sania as "mirchi" while extending warm birthday greetings to her. Along with the funny yet adorable tweet, he also shared a picture of Sania with a bat and a photo of him carrying a tennis racket.
"Hai hai mirchi ! Janam din mubarak my dear friend lots of love and best wishes always ! @MirzaSania," wrote Yuvraj, who bid adieu to international cricket as well as the India Premier League (IPL) earlier this year.
