Is Ishant going the Dhoni way?

By: Subhadeep Bhattacharjee

Ishant Sharma has had a dream start to his international career. Not only did he create panic in the Aussie camp but he made Ricky Ponting the most
egoistic cricketer on planet his bunny. Lambu as he is fondly called by his teammates has become a rock star in his first season at the international arena much like his skipper MS Dhoni and even started sporting long locks.

Dhoni's hair became so popular that former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf had become his fan while Deepika Padukone asked him to have a haircut when they were dating. As with his hair Dhoni even lost sight of Deepika who then hooked up with Yuvraj Singh. It is another story that Deepika dumped Yuvraj during India's tour to Australia.

Cricket fans are asking the question as to when will Ishant visit a barber? Is he waiting some country's President to praise his locks or a Bollywood actress requesting him to get a more masculine look. There was a small spark between Ishant Sharma and Sameera Reddy during the Indian Premier League but it did not catch fire.

Today youngsters do not just look upto Sachin Tendulkar but have found their new heroes in MD Dhonis and Ishant Sharmas. Perhaps the lanky pacer has realised that in modern India its not just the cricketing skills that will be enough for fame but people with rockstar looks will always take away more share of limelight.
