The New Trend In Team India ahead of Champions Trophy


The New Trend In Team India ahead Champions Trophy:-  2016 was about Indian Cricketers sporting beards with pride. Apart from whites and blues, beard had become an indispensable part of India’s uniform. So much that it was difficult for people to recognize cricketers.

This year Indian Cricketers have got their razors out and whiskers off calling it #BreakTheBeard. It all started in the middle of IPL season when Jadeja thought it would be wise to do so. Always known to be a trendsetter he set the vogue and everyone has been following that.


Since then Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya followed his footsteps and got their beards off, Shikhar Dhawan and Suresh Raina being the latest to bite the dust! Skipper Virat Kohli has however said a big ‘NO!’


The new facial hairstyles of differ from each other. While Jadeja has kept and moustache and a goatee that extends little longer upto sides, Rohit finds himself cool in his French beard.


While Hardik Pandya had first kept a moustache and later changed his mind, Rahane has kept just a little soul patch under his lip.


After IPL Shikhar Dhawan and Suresh Raina became the latest to join the list, both preferring a French Beard. Raina tweeted, “My daughter Gracia doesn’t like my beard. So this one is for you Gracia”. Saying so, Dhawan’s son Zoravar had no problems with his dad’s stubble and Shikhar did so by his own wish and will.


All the cricketers have posted the #BreakThe Beard video in the same way. First they rub their stubbly face with a scorn look on their faces and some song playing in the background. Then they place their hands on camera to cover it and when they get it off there comes their new shaven look!!

Beard bought a lot of success to Team India in last 2 years. However Indians would hope this new facial hairstyle turns out to be even luckier charm and they have not done the wrong thing by getting it off.
