    All-time Worst Haircuts in Cricket

    Nomminees:

    Colin Miller - really dreadful haircut. This guy really had no idea at all. What was he thinking with all those silly colours? No further comment needed.

    Bob Willis - Great bowler but when it came to hairstyles he was just uphill gardening. Granted it was the 70s but his wild and wooly almost sheeps coat look with lamb chop side burns should have been left in the "maybe" basket.

    Glen McGrath - I would have love to have been this guys barber as it would have been the easiest $15 i would have ever made every time he came in. He clearly isnt a fashionable man at the best of times but his lego-man number really took the cake.

    Shane Warne - The Mullet he sported in his early days really did him no favours in the style or ladies department. His ability to bowl and earn a sh*tload of cash made up for it though and he duelly saluted with a stunner of a wife prepared to put up with beer-guts and bigotry.

    Harbhajan Singh - Thank god the man wears a turban because what lies underneath should make every hetrosexual male cringe. A full head of dirty brown locks flow right down to his *rse crack. Hair like this should be left to the girls and even then it should be washed once in a while.

    Clive Lloyd - From one extreme to the other he simply couldnt get it right when it came to hair style. The big fella moved between the big afro made famous by just about every black man in the 70s and the short back and sides with a flat top sported by the likes of Mr T of "The A-Team" fame. Neither of these worked particularly well with Lloyds nerdy glassess and should really have been left to a smaller, more female-friendly face.

    These are your finalists ladies and gentlemen. Vote away!

    I would have to say Miller for his hair, at least it stood out in a crowd of cricket players.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but practising Sikhs do not cut their hair for religious reasons. Your above comment is rather insensitive and could be offensive to some people.

    You'd be spot on correct here Dasa. Harbhajan doesn't cut his hair due to Religious reasons. Many Sikh's nowadays aren't too strict and do cut their hair and shave, but the more orthadox Sikh's aren't allowed to cut any hair that grows, and it's obvious that Harbhajan is an orthadox, practising Sikh.

    I'd take back that comment Camel56.

    Also Sikh's generally keep their hair clean and well maintained. Harbhajan wears a turban so how in the world do you know its dirty?

    It may get dirty/sweaty after bowling over after over on a hot day, but other than the cricket field, I doubt you've see Harbhajan, let alone without the turban.

    Well, does that mean you can insult someone's hairstyle all you like, unless its due to religious reasons? A bit hypocritical if you ask me. Insults are insults. Just because its based on religion doesn't make it any 'worse' per se. That's the problem with today's world IMO. McGrath or Clive Lloyd could feel equally insulted, regarding what Camel said.

    I'd leave this mini rant at that though, since this is a cricket forum.

    Wrong again masterblaster. I saw Harbhajan at a nightclub in Brisbane on their last tour of Australia and he wasnt wearing any turban.

    Yes you don't have to wear a turban when singing karaoke unless you're harbouring a portfolio of mass song destruction.

    It is hard to choose between James Anderson and Ponting (India 2001). I'll give Anderson the benefit of the doubt, in that he was trying to be 'cool', but Ponting couldn't be cool if he tried.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Jonesy - If Indian Idol is of the same standard as the last series of Australian Idol then id give Harbhajan some sort of chance of winning. He was pumping out a pretty good rendition of Led Zepplins "Kashmire"

    Okay guys here are the facts and they come from a sikh-namely myself.

    1. Sikh religion prohibits cutting of bodily hair. I cut my hair at the age of 48 and that too after my father had passed away and I could do it without causing grave hurt to him !

    2. Sikhs are reqquired by the religion to keep their hair clean and thats why they HAVE to wear a turban. In fact, it is also mandatory to have a 'kada' (small comb) on one's person all the time (strictly all the time) again for the sole purpose of keeping your hair clean. Its one of the five K's that sikhs are required to have on their person.

    3. Harbhajan is NOT generally seen in public with his hair open. What is being refered to above is a visit to a night club where he went to have fun and maybe did not want to stand out as someone 'weird' as many sikh youngsters do (my sons included). He is unlikely to do (go out with his hair open and uncovered) that in his home town without being censured by family members. He has also participated in a fashion show where he had his hair loose and styled in a manner where they looked like wild locks refered to by another poster. I dont see how it can be assumed that they were dirty.

    4. Yes. Most sikhs would be upset at fun poked at their hair or anything that they percieve as an insult basically aimed at their 'difference' from others. I think many people are similarly sensitive and if one is aware of its religious (or otherwise sensitive nature), it makes eminent sense to avoid such 'fun'.
