Kolkata Knight Riders' star all-rounder Andre Russell is one of the most explosive cricketers across the globe. Apart from the havoc he creates on the field of cricket, the 32-year-old is also known for donning some unique hairstyles over the years. Ahead of the new season, the franchise posted a picture of the all-rounder who can be seen with an extremely new look.

What happened when Dre last coloured his hair Blonde?

The mysterious caption of the tweet left the fans wondering about what had actually happened when Russell donned a similar hairstyle. Notably, the Jamaican had coloured his hair blonde last in 2019, coincidentally before the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, the same opposition KKR are up against on Sunday. On that day, Russell picked 2 wickets and played an explosive unbeaten knock of 49 runs off 19 deliveries, handing his side a brilliant victory.

Will new hair colour bring a change in fortunes?

With KKR opening their IPL 2021 campaign against SRH in Chennai, Russell would certainly be hoping that he can repeat the heroics he produced two years back. The all-rounder will be hoping to start the new season on a positive note with his new blonde hair after he endured a disappointing campaign last year where he managed only 117 runs and 6 wickets in 10 matches.
