Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, who turns 37 today, is known for his quirky acts and hilarious punches on and off the field, alongside his mastery as a batter and a leader. The Mumbai-born player is the only batter in World cricket to register three double centuries in the one-day format, let alone single time, and is regarded as one of the greatest Indian batters to ever take the field.

However, apart from his diligent and focused attitude during the game, Rohit is also famous for his soft and humorous side in between the game. There have been numerous instances during the matches where Rohit has left fans and audiences into splits with quirky antics.

On the occasion of  Rohit Sharma's 37th birthday , here are the Indian skipper's five hilarious moments caught on camera:

5. Rohit Sharma pleads umpire Virendra for turned-down boundary 

During the third T20I game against Afghanistan earlier this year, Rohit Sharma had registered two consecutive ducks in the first two games before he went on to smash his fifth century in the third T20I at Bengaluru. However, in the first over against Azmatullah Omarzai, Rohit smashed a boundary which umpire Virendra Sharma signaled as a leg-bye. 

In the next ball, Rohit Sharma hilariously argued with the on-field umpire pleading his case that the ball touched his bat before racing towards the boundary.
