Mumbai Indians’ (MI) all-rounder Kieron Pollard has taken part in the ‘Break the Beard’ challenge and shaved a part of his beard off after taking cue from his teammate and ‘brother’ Hardik Pandya. Pollard and Pandya have been in good touch for MI in this year’s Indian Premier League this season as their lusty blows have helped MI get a final flourish while batting. The duo share a close relationship with each other.

Now inspired by Pandya, Pollard has decided to trim his fully grown beard into a French beard. The West Indian posted the video on his Instagram handle and tagged Pandya.
