The beard stays, says In­dia cap­tain Kohli

The National - News - - SPORT -

In­dia cricket cap­tain Vi­rat Kohli in­sists he will not be shav­ing off his fa­mous beard any time soon. The 29-year-old bats­man, who said he still cleans his own cricket shoes de­spite be­ing one of the world’s high­est­paid ath­letes, has in re­cent years be­come a style icon be­cause of the beard.

A fan asked Kohli at a pro­mo­tional event whether he would ever get rid of his care­fully trimmed bris­tles. “I don’t think so, I re­ally like it,” replied Kohli who will next month play for English county Sur­rey to pre­pare for In­dia’s tour later this year. “I think it suits me. So I don’t want to get rid of it. Look­ing af­ter it is not that dif­fi­cult be­cause the beard oils have come in and it’s very easy. A lit­tle bit of beard oil and it’s in place. But when it gets too big and thick then ob­vi­ously I have to trim it. That’s the only thing. But no, I would not get rid of it.”
