London: After some clinical performances on the field, especially the massive 89-run win over archrivals Pakistan in the World Cup, the Indian cricketers were handed a two-day break before they regrouped in Southampton on Wednesday. And no sooner did they hit the training ground did they catch the attention of the fans with their new haircuts.
Skipper Virat Kohli along with stumper MS Dhoni, all-rounder Hardik Pandya and leggie Yuzvendra Chahal were all spotted in new hairdos and the social media was flooded with pictures of them.
Dhoni, who has always been known for following the latest style trends, got a new haircut along with Hardik from celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim. The hairstylist posted photographs of the duo on Instagram. In the pictures, Dhoni is seen sporting faded sides along with his beard. In fact, Kohli was also seen sporting the same look with a heavier beard.
The India cricket team also took to social media to post photos of the four and asked the fans to vote on who they thought looked the coolest.
India will next take on minnows Afghanistan on Saturday. While India have won three of their four games with one being washed off, Afghanistan are yet to win a game in this edition of the showpiece event.
