Indian captain M.S. Dhoni is known for his daring innovations, both with bat and his hairstyle, ever since he made his debut against Bangladesh nearly a decade ago.

Dhoni was seen sporting a new hairstyle while leading Chennai Super Kings against South African side Titans in the Champions League T20 match here on Sunday. Dhoni, who had long hair when he burst onto the cricket scene, decided to go in for a style similar to ‘Mohawk’, once made famous by David Beckham.

From long locks to cropped hair, the different styles that Dhoni had sported have become a style statement with youngsters, not only in his hometown of Ranchi, but all over the country.

Every time Dhoni came to Ranchi, he had his hair cut at the Kaya Salon, attracting hundreds of fans, and the police had a tough time controlling the crowd.
