Although cricket in India has been suspended due to the novel Coronavirus pandemic, the iconic faces of the cricketing fraternity of the country are no short of providing fan service. With the blessing of social media, many current and former cricketers are sharing their fitness drills, hobbies, family time or even some new skills they have learned during this nationwide lock down. Sachin Tendulkar has now become his own barber, as he gives himself a fresh haircut and shares it with his fans on the internet!
On Sunday, Sachin posted some photos on his official Instagram account, where he was seen giving his hair a short trim with a scissor, and came up with a witty caption, comparing his past time of ‘square cuts’ with ‘hair cuts’ at present.
“From playing square cuts 🏏 to doing my own hair cuts 💇🏻♂️, have always enjoyed doing different things. How’s my new hairdo 💁🏻♂️ looking @aalimhakim & @nandan_v_naik? 😋” the former Team India international wrote in the post, also asking for the opinions of renowned hairstylists Aalim Hakim and Nandan v Naik. Check it out below-
The Little Master, who was known for his art with the bat, also did a decent job with the scissors, as the netizens poured love and appreciation in the comments.
However, haircuts aren’t the only activity the 46 year old is busy with. Last week, Sachin decided to feed 5000 people for a month by donating rations for the underprivileged of Shivaji Nagar and Govandi areas of Mumbai, as confirmed by non-profit organisation named Apnalaya on Twitter.

Sachin also teamed up with fellow cricketers Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, Mithali Raj and few other bollywood celebrities to spread awareness against domestic violence in the ongoing lock down, through a video on Twitter with the message ‘lockdown on domestic violence.’
