When Dhoni made his entry on the international circuit, he used to sport long and brown hair. This long hair was his identity. But soon he cut the hair to a normal length. Very few know that it was because of Dhoni wanted to have a look that would just be like his favorite Bollywood actor John Abraham.

However, he even cut the normal length hair and became totally bald. According to a story running around, it was because Dhoni had made a wish to go bald if India won the 2011 ICC World Cup. India won the Cup and the cool-headed Dhoni kept his word.
