‘game face’

When Dravid and Tendulkar bat, they look very serious most of the time. They don’t joke around. This serious look that a sportsman has while he is on the field is referred to as his `game face’.

Example:  Don’t be fooled by his jokes. Once he’s got his game face on and steps onto the field, Chethan is a completely different person.
