Ten cricketers who’ve had hair transplants
A hair transplant has helped dozens of cricketers fix their receding hairlines, with great results, so here are ten examples of cricketers who’ve subtracted years from their looks with a simple procedure.
- Shane Warne
Spin King Shane Warne’s hair loss was obvious for all to see, as has the hair transplants which have reversed his balding.
The procedures worked a treat for Aussie Shane, as he’s now got a full head of hair and he’s even dated actress and model Liz Hurley since sorting out his hair.
- Sourav Ganguly
As captain of the Indian cricket team Sourav Ganguly was under a lot of pressure – with the expectations of the Indian public being extremely high.
The stress he faced took its toll on his hairline Ganguly’s unkempt and messy hair began balding right in the middle of his head. Fortunately for the “Prince of Kolkata” a hair transplant immediately resolved his balding problems.
- Jacques Kallis
South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis followed in the footsteps of Shane Warne when he underwent a “strand-by-strand” treatment.
He did so thanks to the encouragement of his long-term girlfriend, model Shamone Jardim, who was over the moon with her sweetheart’s new and more youthful look.
After the procedure Kallis told reporters, “I got my hair back, which changed my look completely. I feel younger and more confident now.”
- Virender Sehwag
Known as the “Nawab of Najafgarh”, Virender Sehwag felt his receding hairline didn’t do justice to his title, so he opted to undergo a hair transplant.
- Graham Gooch
Ex-England captain Graham Gooch was one of the most successful international batsmen of his generation but that didn’t prevent him suffering from a hair loss problem which saw him go bald from the forehead up.
Fortunately a hair-transplant restored his hair, and he went on to be the poster boy for hair transplants for many years.
- Gautam Gambhir
The Indian left-handed batsman was interviewed in 2009 and asked what the worst part of being an international cricketer was.
He was honest enough to say that it was the stress: “You lose a lot of hair — especially when you are an opening batsman,” he said.
“Cricket gave me everything but it took away all my hair.”
Fortunately Gautam got it back thanks to a hair transplant.
- Doug Bollinger
Doug Bollinger lost his hair young and was known as Doug the Rug, thanks to the toupee he wore for many years.
It caused him such a crisis of confidence he lost faith in his ability and was working in retail, before a hair transplant gave him back his confidence. He went on to play for Australia.
- Martin Crowe
Kiwi cricket legend Martin Crowe is one of many people to have regained their mane thanks to a hair transplant clinic.
- Michael Vaughan
The retired English cricket captain spent some of the money he earned during a hugely successful career on a hair transplant.
The new head of hair served him well when he appeared on BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing.
- Rana Naveed Hassan
The 36-year-old Pakistani all-rounder went completely bald before a hair transplant came to his rescue.
