MS Dhoni often trends on social media platforms thanks to his skills on the cricket field. This time around, the former Indian captain is breaking the Internet but for a very different reason. The cricketing icon gave his fans major fashion goals when he opted to get a brand new haircut. With the cool new look, the cricketer seemed to be channelling his inner rockstar, or at least that was how fans described his style. Images of the haircut went viral on social media on Friday after a post was shared by celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim. Sharing the photos on Twitter, Mr Hakim said that he thoroughly enjoyed giving the “legend” the new look.
The tweet by Mr Hakim said, “Legend Dhoni sports a dashing look. Thoroughly enjoyed doing this haircut and beard for our legend Mahendra Singh Dhoni.” In one of the images, he is also seen along with the cricketer. The tweet has received nearly 7,000 likes in just under four hours.

Another user said that Mr Dhoni looked like a “king”.
Users seemed thrilled that the cricketer would be sporting the stylish haircut for the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament that is scheduled to resume in September.

Mr Hakim shared the same pictures on his Instagram timeline as well. Fans on the photo-sharing platform too shared their love for the hairstyle.
