Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik took to Instagram on Wednesday to show off his new look and took on the “Break the Beard” challenge after being nominated by Mumbai Indians all-rounder Kieron Pollard. “@ kieron.pollard55 Challenge accepted. As the season goes on, it’s time to hit a new level & #breakthebeard. KKR 1 – MI 1. #korbolorbojeetbo #GameFaceOn #ipl #MIvsKKR,” Dinesh Karthik captioned the video on Instagram. On Tuesday, at the direction of Hardik Pandya, Pollard had taken part in the Break the Beard challenge and nominated KKR skipper to take on the task.
While Pollard has contributed to the Mumbai Indians’ bat and ball success a few times this season, Karthik has yet to make a noticeable contribution to KKR.
The captain of KKR has only scored 37 runs in four games, 30 of which came in just one innings in this years IPL.
He gets his chance to turn things around later in the day when KKR takes on a rejuvenated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
The Kolkata-based franchise was outclassed by Delhi Capitals in their last game and they will rule against CSK, who beat Kings XI Punjab by 10 wickets on their previous outing.
KKR is currently fourth on the points table and a win over CSK on Wednesday brings them to third place.
