Ravindra Jadeja kick-started the 'Break the Beard' challenge and then most of the players followed him. During the Indian Premier League (IPL), Jadeja took to Instagram to reveal his new look to his fans and followers and captioned the video, "Change the game on the field. Change the look in the dressing room. #BreakTheBeard #rajputboy #newlook #timeforchange #vivoipl #glvsrcb." The Gujarat Lions' all-rounder's challenge was taken up by two Mumbai Indians stars - Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya.
Now, Suresh Raina has joined 'Break the Beard' club and uploaded a video on Instagram to disclose his new look, which he donned to fulfill his daughter's wish.
"I realised tht my little daughter is not so fond of the beard so this 1 for you Gracia. Presenting my#BreakTheBeard look #newlook #summerlook," Raina wrote.
Last week, Delhi Daredevils captain Zaheer Khan also took the #Breakthebeard challenge when he tweeted: "Is a fuzzy beard your nightmare. Well why fear it when you can just break it. Presenting my #BreakTheBeard #timetraveller look (sic)."
His fiancee Sagarika Ghatge, who seemed to be in love with Zaheer's new look, posted a selfie with him and wrote," Came back home to this stranger @zakkhan34 doing #breakthebeard rather well."
Shikhar Dhawan, who is all set to take part in the Champions Trophy also took the challenge and revealed his new look on Instagram.
Despite some of his good friends opting for a fresh look during the IPL, Indian skipper Virat Kohli politely refused participate. He took to his Instagram account and posted this: Sorry boys @hardikpandya_official @royalnavghan @rohitsharma45 but iam not ready to break the beard yet. Great job on the makeovers though. Kudos.
It will be interesting to see who takes the next #breakthebeard challenge.
