Just when the ‘#BreaktheBeard’ trend was catching up fast on the Indian players during IPL 2017, Virat Kohli has expressed no interest in ‘breaking’ his beard through his Instagram posts. Kohli posted a photo on Sunday morning with the message reading, “Sorry boys @hardikpandya_official @royalnavghan @rohitsharma45 but iam not ready to break the beard yet. Great job on the makeovers though. Kudos.” The trend started off with Ravindra Jadeja uploading a video on his Instagram account and putting up a snazzy look. When Kohli saw this different look of Jadeja during an IPL 2017 game, he was seen laughing hysterically on the all-rounder along with Praveen Kumar and others.

Following the trend, Hardik Pandya also donned a new look, posting a video of the same, and giving the credit to Jadeja. Soon, Rohit Sharma followed the fashion. Both the players donned the new look in their match against Delhi Daredevils (DD) on Saturday. Many thought that Kohli might follow the trend soon. But Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain is usually known to set new fashion statements, which most of his Indian teammates follow. It will be interesting to see what wouldl be the rest of the team’s reaction on this #BreaktheBeard wave. Several Indian cricketers, such as Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Ishant Sharma, Amit Mishra and a few more in the domestic circuit follow the trend.
Meanwhile, IPL 2017 is almost halfway through. RCB are right at the bottom of the table placed on No. 7 and are in hunt of a desperate win.
