Former Indian cricket team captain sports shaven head in viral photo

Yes, that's MS Dhoni, the former Indian captain, and we can't keep calm either!

Listen to this story and more on 8@8 with David Light

Known to set trends with his looks, the Chennai Super Kings captain is seen in a Monk-like avatar, ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) that starts next month.

On Saturday, the official broadcasters of the IPL, Star Sports, posted Dhoni's photo, which shows him rocking the shaven head look in a monk avatar.

The photo has gone viral.

It's highly likely that the look is for a commercial linked to the cricket league. But that has not stopped fans from hailing Dhoni as someone with "monk like patience and warrior spirit".
