Dinesh Chandimal’s ‘new hair-stylist’ makes him bald and beardless
Cricket and tresses seem to have a special connection, for hair makes news every time it belongs to someone be it in Team India or Sri Lankan cricket.
Due to the current lock-down owing to the Corona Virus, former Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has not had his regular appointment with his renowned hairstylist, Samantha K. Pathirana (whose clients include prominent Sri Lanka and foreign cricketers). So wife Isika turned hairstylist!
Speaking exclusively over her mobile from Colombo on Wednesday morning, she said,
“Yes, I made him “almost” bald. He decided to remove his long hair and beard for two reasons. He is an army man and there he is not allowed to keep long hair.”
“Secondly, you can say it is a way of appreciating the humble work being done by the army, police, doctors and para-medical staff and also cleaners. They are doing round the clock excellent work in the country during this difficult lock down period.”
Australia’s star opening batsman David Warner too shaved head bald to show support for Covid-19 fighters. He, however, was not helped by his wife Candice but did it by his own with a charged- machine.
Warner has even suggested others to follow suit, including India captain Virat Kohli, and Australia team-mates Steve Smith, Pat Cummins, Joe Burns, Adam Zampa, Marcus Stoinis, TV personality Piers Morgan, and golfer Travis Smyth.
