India’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja surprised everyone with his new beard style just before the 20th match of 10th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) between his team Gujarat Lions (GL) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday. He amused everyone with his new style of beard by sharing a short clip from his official Twitter account and wrote, “Change the game on the field. Change the look in the dressing room. #BreakTheBeard #rajputboy #newlook #timeforchange #vivoipl #glvsrcb.” In no time, his new look became a sensation on social media but meanwhile, India and RCB captain Virat Kohli seems to have taken a dig at him.

The fact that Kohli made fun of his new look is quite apparent in a picture clicked just before the commencement of the match, possibly before the toss. In the picture, Jadeja is seen standing with his teammates Praveen Kumar, Manpreet Gony along with Kohli. All three are seen laughing while looking at Jadeja’s new avatar.

While playing with new look, Jadeja against RCB had a torrid outing at Rajkot. First he conceded 57 runs from his spell of 4 overs and then scored only 23 from 22 balls. His side GL lost the match by 21 runs while chasing 214 against RCB. Jadeja’s team GL are currently at the bottom of points table with only one win from 5 matches and 4 defeats
