From Pollard to AB De Villiers, 12 cricketers who have taken the #BreakTheBeard challenge this IPL


The #BreakTheBeard trend this year, was started by none other than MS Dhoni, where he donned the new ‘Thala’ look, which was appreciated by his fans and followers. Netizens went gaga over his new beard, as the skipper was spotted sporting a full-grown beard during lockdown.

These players with their refreshing style are showing their A-game on the field making fans wonder if it’s because of #BreakTheBeard.

Two weeks after MSD, Mumbai Indians all-rounder Kieron Pollard, follow the trend and adopted the massively popular French beard. Taking tips from none other than his favorite batting partner Hardik Pandya, Pollard’s French beard suited him just well. In his new avatar, he challenged KKR captain Dinesh Karthik.

Pollard said on his social media post, “Cheggit! New Season, New Polly! Taking the cue from my brother @hardikpandya93. #BreakTheBeard and Game ON! #MIvsKKR. @dk00019 Ready?”


With both MI and KKR, gearing up for the grooming game, CSK didn’t want to be left out. Team’s star batsman Faf Du Plessis, quickly jumped to the bandwagon announcing CSK’s arrival. He sported an Anchor beard and looked too classy and composed to everyone’s liking.

With already so many cricketers donning a new look, AB De Villiers, left no stone unturned to look sharp. He looked his absolute best while sporting a chin strap, with his sharp jawline. Playing his A-game on field, ABD aced his grooming game and said, “Change is the only constant” they say. Took this thought a bit seriously and decided to sport a new style!  what u say @dk00019 @kieron.pollard55 @fafdup @krunalpandya_official. Can’t wait to see who picks up this baton next!
