Miracle pulls off a ninja-esque birthday celebration.. in style!

Ninja-esque birthday celebrations are always a treat to watch and who better than Amer “Miracle” Al-Barkawi to pull it off?

The charismatic pos.1 player for Nigma Galaxy celebrated his birthday in style, in a low key yet subtle fashion.

Mimicking the ‘sharingan’ sign and blowing off the candles on his birthday cake was hands down adorable.

To the uninitiated, the sharingan sign hails from the world of ‘Naruto’, one of the most popular Japanese anime. 

The International 2017 Champion was accompanied by his teammates who chimed in to celebrate the prolific player’s birthday too.

Interestingly, all of Miracle’s teammates are former TI winners as well – and yet they are languishing in DPC WEU Division II.

Ironic eh?

Nonetheless, they are very well on track to qualify to Division I as they sit comfortably on top of the leaderboard with a 4:0 score.

It appears as if Syed “Sumail” Hassan’s inclusion has given the Nigma Galaxy a fresh breath of air – something that was lacking previously.

It will be interesting to track Nigma Galaxy’s progress, especially after DPC Tour 3, with teams scrambling to qualify to TI 11.

Pretty ninja-esque birthday no?
