The dreadlocks that have become unmistakable part of Andrew Symonds colourful persona would soon be a thing of past with the controversial Australian cricketer set to shave those as part of a charity drive.
Symonds will ditch his famous five-year old dreadlocks on live TV on February 14 as part of the Worlds Greatest Shave fund-raising event.
I am looking forward to it I will be able to sneak around a little bit more, Symonds said.
Another thing Symonds will give up,at least in the short run,is bowling. He is expected to return to first-class cricket next week as a specialist batsman and is likely to be used in the same capacity when he returns to the national team.
The 33-year-old,who is recuperating after a knee surgery,will play for Queensland in a Sheffield Shield clash against Western Australia starting at the Gabba next week. I have been sent the medical reports,he is well ahead of time, Queensland coach Trevor Barsby said.
