Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli is one of the most stylish sportspersons in the modern generation. His confident personality, coupled with extreme fitness levels make him one of the most adored cricketers in the world. As Team India toiled in Sri Lanka to defeat Bangladesh in the final of Nidhas Trophy T20 tri-series, Kohli has been enjoying a break away from cricket and spending time with his newlywed wife Anushka Sharma. With the Indian Premier League (IPL) now just a couple of weeks away, the Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper revealed his new hairstyle by posting a picture on his Twitter account.
Kohli had also recently gotten a new tattoo made on his shoulder, soon after arriving back in India from the long tour of South Africa. The 29-year-old had apparently visited Aliens Tattoo in Bandra to get inked around an already existing ‘God’s eye’ tattoo on his left shoulder.
Though Kohli’s franchise RCB hasn’t had the success fans expect them to achieve in the cash-rich cricket league, the 29-year-old has been their best performer over the last few years. While tattoo was just the start, a new haircut is another change that Kohli has made ahead of the IPL season 11. Here’s the picture that the Team India skipper had posted on his Twitter account with the caption, “Great cut from the style master @AalimHakim”:
The RCB camp recently started off their preparations for the new season, with domestic players Sarfaraz Khan, Parthiv Patel, Manan Vohra, Kulwant Khejrolia, M. Ashwin, Pawan Negi, Pavan Deshpande, Aniruddha Joshi, Aniket Choudhary and Mandeep Singh reported to former New Zealand skipper and current coach Daniel Vettori.
Although there’s still time for the serious preparations to begin, the camp focussed mainly on fitness drills, conditioning and strengthening, with the Yo-Yo Tests also being conducted. Later in the month, the fully functioning camp is expected to be started.
