It’s a crucial IPL 2020 game for Rajasthan Royals as they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in Dubai on Thursday but their star all-rounder Rahul Tewatia is not calm and composed in the lead up to the high-octane contest, it seems.
Rahul Tewatia, who has taken IPL 2020 by storm with his all-round performances, took the Break the Beard Challenge on Thursday. Tewatia took to social media to share a clip of him doing away with his beard.
Rahul Tewaita’s clean-shaven look certainly came as a surprise to his teammates and fans. “Feeling quite lucky and confident. Now it’s Game Time!” Tewatia wrote on his social media post. While Tewatia flaunted his signature goatee, Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder Vijay Shankar also joined the bandwagon as he sported only a chin beard.
Tewatia has certainly been one of the stars of IPL 2020. Having played a couple of blinders, Tewatia averages over 40 as he scored 222 runs in 10 matches. Tewatia has also picked up 7 wickets with his handy leg-spin.
It’s a high-stakes encounter between Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad as Steve Smith’s men are looking to enter the top 4 after Kolkata Knight Riders were handed an 8-wicket thrashing on Wednesday.
Rajasthan Royals will be pumped up as they are heading into the clash on the back of a convincing 7-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday. Sunrisers Hyderabad will be hoping for some inspiration as they are on a three-match losing streak.
