The IPL is churning out some very interesting hidden talents of so many players and some are not remotely related to the cricket we are seeing on the field. While most of us are glued to the skills of these amazing players on the field, the rest of us are trying to come around with the fact that these talented athletes have some really amazing talents off the field too.
Talking about England and Rajasthan Royals star player, Ben Stokes, one of the few quick thoughts that pop up in our heads are all related to his cricket career. But the talented man revealed something that has surprised us.
When Rajasthan Royals’ official Twitter account posted a video of Ben giving a new haircut to teammate Ish Sodhi, we realised what the cricketer is up to behind the scenes.

In the video, Ben can be seen styling Ish’s hair with ease while the New Zealander sits concerned about the outcome. Though Ben nailed it in the end, we can understand why he would be tensed about the whole thing.
The video, of course, led to some fans speculating the whole scene. But Ben being the gentleman he is reached out in a follow-up tweet where he explained that Ish had actually lost a bet and this was the punishment he had to suffer.

Both Ben and Ish did not disclose what the bet was and the curiosity might frustrate us for a few days now, but in the end, all is well when team players are seen blending effortlessly with each other.
Following a similar video by West Indian star player Dwayne Bravo, Ben is the second international player to do this. Are we seeing a trend of hairstylists booming in the IPL this season? We can only wait and watch.
Rajasthan Royals are currently placed in the second half of the table and will be looking to get some big performances on the pitch in the coming games.
