Symonds gets a new hairdo for World Cup
He is cricket's very own David Beckham when it comes to sporting bizzare hairdos and Aussie all-rounder Andrew Symonds has lived up to the reputation by getting his curly locks rolled to be in sync with the Caribbean culture during the World Cup.
Symonds sported the new look while he did his first net practice since rupturing his right bicep.
Being in the Caribbean is sort of a homecoming for the all-rounder, who was born to West Indian parents in England in 1975 but was adopted by a family in Australia.
The big-hitting Aussie, who got the job done by a local hairdresser at the team resort at St Vincent, said the new hairdo was "cool" but would be hard to keep under control.
"It can be hard to keep the yellow cap on when you're running, whereas the baggy green is a lot tighter," he was quoted as saying by 'The Australian'.
Symonds, who practised with tennis balls during the brief 10-minute session, is aiming to be fit for the March 24 group match against South Africa.
