Following their remarkable victory over South Africa in the ICC World Cup 2023 match held in Kolkata, Team India celebrated two special occasions, namely the birthday of star batter Virat Kohli and the outstanding match-winning performances of all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. The celebration involved cutting two cakes, with Jadeja cutting one and Kohli cutting the other. After cutting the cake, Jadeja playfully offered it to Kohli, resulting in a humorous moment.
