MS Dhoni debuts new hairstyle - bald buzz hawk

Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is also the captain of IPL team Chennai Super Kings, has a thing for new hairstyles.

At Dhoni's home ground in Ranchi, he was seen sporting a brand new hairstyle during the Chennai Super Kings vs Titans match of the Champions League T20 on Sunday.

The 32-year-old was seen with a bald buzz cut look when he took off his wicket keeper helmet between overs after winning the toss and putting Titans in to bat.

The new look reminded fans of Italian football star Mario Balotelli who also has a similar hairstyle.

India's hottest sports icon has shaved off his hair from both sides and he now looks like a Rock Star. Dhoni has always been in the news for his offbeat hairstyle.

When he rose like shining star on the Indian cricket firmament, his long hair evoked appreciation from the likes of then Pakistan president General Pervez Musharraf. Thousands of Dhoni fans in India began sporting his long hair look.

He sported long hair during India's Twenty20 World Cup triumph in 2007. Later, Dhoni cut off his long hair, and sported regular hairstyle.

The new Rock Star hairstyle is sure to evoke appreciation among the legions of his admirers.
