Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli has decided to stick to his beard. Kohli turned down the ‘BreakTheBeard’ challenge thrown by cricketer Ravindra Jadeja . He replied by posting a snap on his Instagram account captioned as “Sorry boys @hardikpandya_official @royalnavghan @rohitsharma45 but iam not ready to break the beard yet . Great job on the makeovers though. Kudos ✌️✌️.”

The challenge was thrown by Gujrat Lions all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja, who is popularly known as Sir Ravindra Jadeja, recently uploaded a photo on his Instagram account, where he shaved his beard and sported a new look and captioned it as “Change the game on the field. Change the look in the dressing room. #BreakTheBeard #rajputboy #newlook #timeforchange #vivoipl #glvsrcb.”

Indian players have been sporting the bearded look for a while now. But following Jadeja’s post, it seemed that the bearded look would make way for the new look. Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya and their skipper Rohit Sharma decided to take the ‘BreakTheBeard’ challenge . Pandya shaved his beard and posted a snap on Instagram and captioned it as “Jaddu, this one’s for you.We got no dressing room confusions here now. #BreakTheBeard #MIGotStyle #newlook #KKRvGL #OneMoreSurpriseComing.”

Sharma also uploaded a picture on his Instagram and captioned it as “Decided to finally have a summer style of my own. My time to #BreakTheBeard!”.

Decided to finally have a summer style of my own. My time to #BreakTheBeard!
