Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag is known for his wittiness on various social media platforms. Since his retirement from international cricket, he has experimented with commentary and various other business stuff. But going through the tweets of Sehwag is a must these days as he entertains one and all with his sarcastic comments and entertaining birthday.
The legacy of Virat Kohli concerning to Indian Cricket is not limited to only fitness and consistency. Kohli has set new trends in the Indian Cricket Team. He was one of the Indian cricketers who adopted of having a beard and transfered that legacy to the players in his team.
In Indian, cricket has been treated as a religion and the cricketers as the gods of that religion.Looking at Kohli, the entire nation started having a beard. Be it Ravindra Jadeja, or KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma or Ajinkya Rahane, at one point, all the Indian cricketers had a beard.
However, the flamboyant all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja started a break the beard trend which now followed religiously amongst the youth and in the Indian cricketers. In the ongoing season of IPL, Jadeja looked dapper with his beard game on top, by reducing the quantity of his facial hair.
Similarly, Rohit Sharma followed the #BreakTheBeard trend and sported a clean shaven look. He was ably backed by his fellow Mumbaikar batsman Ajinkya Rahane who even posted a video on twitter presenting his beard transformation. Following the Mumbai duo, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, and Suresh Raina too shaved their beard off.
Virender Sehwag made an interesting accumulation of the trend which is widespread among the Indian cricketers. Viru tweeted a catchy caption by saying, “Kuch players on-field Record todte hain, Kuch off-field Beard todte hain, Baazigar wahi hain, jo donon main jeet te hain #BreakTheBeard” (translation – Some players break record on field and some break beards off field, a true winner is the one who strikes balance between the two.)
