Former India captain MS Dhoni has been a trendsetter throughout his cricketing career be it on the field or off the field. While his long-hair look inspired the MS Dhoni hairstyle in India as youth flocked to hair salons to get a similar hairdo, he even received praise for his hairstyle from the former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf. With his coolness on the pitch, he has deservedly earned the nickname "Captain Cool" as he preps for yet another season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
