From Virat Kohli to Ajinkya Rahane: Which Team India cricketer has the best beard?

Updated: Dec 04, 2016, 14:59 IST | Suprita Mitter |

As the boys of the Indian Test and ODI cricket teams -- from Virat Kohli to MS Dhoni to Ajinkya Rahane -- flaunt their facial fuzz, two Mumbai stylists rate the hits and misses

Virat Kohli
Shetty: He carries both the clean shaven and bearded look well. This beard suits him just fine. He can’t wear a more dense one, or his facewill appear too small.
Verdict: ****

Pawar: It looks good on him since he has an angular face. He has tried varied styles and carried them off. A long moustache will be interesting to see on him.
Verdict: *****

MS Dhoni
Shetty: The beard looks good on him. It defines his face, and keeping it to the right length makes him look stylish too.
Verdict: *****

Pawar: The long stubble with slight angles on the cheeks look nice. He can try a heavier beard with a moustache.
Verdict: *****

Kedar Jadhav
Shetty: The beard needs to go. A chean shave or a light stubble will work better with short, cropped sides and back and loose wavy longish hair on the top.
Verdict: *

Pawar: For his round face, he can go for a long stubble or a duck-tail beard which will make his face look longer.
Verdict: **

Shikhar Dhawan
Shetty: Looks sharp and defines his jaw line. It works best with the cropped, shaved hair.
Verdict: *****

Pawar: The short stubble with a twirl moustache looks great with the oval face. He will look even more raw, masculine and aggressive if the beard is heavier. The shape of his face is good to carry off different styles.
Verdict: ****

Amit Mishra
Shetty: The look works well for him. A thicker beard will look good too.
Verdict: **

Pawar: He has a small, round face and should go for a stubble that’s slightly longer on the chin and a twirl moustache.
Verdict: **

Rohit Sharma
Shetty: The beard looks too dense and unkempt. A clean look will bring out the sharpness of the features.
Verdict: **

Pawar: He has a small, round face and should go for a stubble slightly longer on the chin and a twirl moustache.
Verdict: **

Ajinkya Rahane
Shetty: Most shapes of beard will work for him, but a clean shave will define the jaw more.
Verdict: ***

Pawar: The stubble suits him since he has a slightly round face. It might look better if the chin portion is heavier than the rest. It helps make the face look squarish.
Verdict: ***

Dhawal Kulkarni
Shetty: The beard doesn’t add anything to his personality. A subtle stubble will suit the shape of his face better.
Verdict: **

Pawar: He could opt for a long stubble and blue collar beard.
Verdict: ***
