Gone are the days when cricketers were considered as style novice. Of course, there were the likes of Ravi Shashtri, Wasim Akram and Shane Warne who were considered suave and big on the panache factor but sportsmen like them were rare. Now with the new breed of men showing up, things have changed. Tattoos, fancy hairstyles and even piercings have found their way to the Indian cricket team and the most stylish of them is believed to be Virat Kohli.
The captain of the Indian cricket team is not only meticulous with his game but also particular about the way he looks and this has got nothing to do with his celebrity girlfriend Anushka Sharma – he has always been keen on experimenting. A lot of youngsters these days are taking inspiration and his beard style is something that has caught the fancy of many.
Immaculately trimmed, it gives the impression of a sharper jawline. What’s interesting to see is the symmetrical sideburns which run down to form a part of the chinstrap. There’s also a goatee included in this look with a horseshoe mustache.
