CRICKET star Ben Stokes has stunned fans by dying his hair bleach blond, echoing that of England footballer Phil Foden.
The 30-year-old revealed his new hairdo during his debut in The Hundred for the Northern Superchargers.
It comes after Stokes’ fellow England teammates Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone also dyed their hair blond for England’s ODI against Pakistan.
Stokes‘ Superchargers were taking on Welsh Fire on Saturday night in the first of their games in The Hundred.
And the international all-rounder was on the winning side as the Superchargers won by six wickets.
But it was his bright blond locks that caught the eye first off as he appeared to resemble Man City star Foden, who changed his hair colour prior to Euro 2020.
Meanwhile, England captain Eoin Morgan was quizzed on whether he would join Stokes, Roy and Livingstone in dying his hair.
A reporter asked Morgan: “A couple of players have gone for the Phil Foden bleach blond look – any chance of you following suit?”
To which the England captain simply replied: “Me? No!”
