Sachin is not the only cricketer to experiment with his hair. Dhoni had shaved his head after India won the World Cup.
The unassuming cricketer coloured his curls brown and later got them ironed out.
They are the masters of the game but when it comes to sheer bad hairstyles, it is difficult to judge who's worse.
Sourav Ganguly's hair stuck out in all direction during the Delhi vs Pune match during the fifth season of the Indian Premier League.
Sachin, known for his curly ringlets since he debuted at a very young age, seems to have straightened his hair.
The little master has problems of his own. Sachin's hair colour stood out at practice sessions and during his evenings out with wife Anjali.
New photos of Sachin during a team training session at Dhaka showed him with an unusual hairstyle.
Sourav may not have the funkiest hairstyle but his return to the IPL has sparked hopes of fans game for some aggressive cricket.
In a first of its kind, a mobile application has been launched on Sourav, something that will help the Pune Warriors mentor-cum-coach's fans worldwide stay updated about the upcoming IPL T20.
Gone is the mop of curly hair that endeared him to his female fans as a young sensation.
Love their hair style or hate it, Sachin and Sourav remain icons to millions of Indians for bringing glory to the nation on countless occasions with hair-raising feat of the field.
The 39-year-old captain of the Pune Warriors India ran across the field, his thinning straight hair disheveled in the wind.
