RR’s official Twitter account posted a video of Stokes giving a new haircut to Ish Sodhi. “A special haircut courtesy @benstokes38! What do you think did @ish_sodhi do to let Stokesy give him a haircut? #HallaBol,” they tweeted along with the video.

While this naturally led to some speculation among fans, Stokes cleared the air with a tweet of his own where he clarified that the New Zealand spinner was on the losing end of a bet and this was his punishment. “A man of his word...lost a bet and took it like a champion @ish_sodhi,” tweeted the England all-rounder.

Sadly for fans, the nature of their bet wasn’t revealed by either Stokes or Sodhi.
The Royals are currently languishing at the bottom half of the table and will need a few special performances to turn their season around and potentially make the play-offs.
