The Pakistan Cricket Team is in Bengaluru, India, for the World Cup and here you will meet a hairdresser who was a cricketer in the past. Daniel has bowled to Pakistan’s chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq and former captain Younis Khan in the nets and now he is styling cricketer’s hair.
Daniel shared memories of Pakistan’s tour of India in 2005 and said, “I have fond memories with Younis Khan and Inzamam-ul-Haq, I was a net bowler and a left-arm spinner.” He recounted that he was once making Inzamam-ul-Haq bowl in the nets, when the batting great missed the first ball, after which he got very angry. “On the next ball, he played such a powerful shot that the ball went out of the ground and nobody could find it.”
When asked why did Daniel choose to have Pakistani players bowl the net, the former cricketer said that a lot of bowlers used to make the Indian team bowl at that time. “Muhammad Kaif and Yuvraj Singh, etc., were very serious, but on the contrary, the Pakistani team was very cool.”
Daniel said that Pakistani players used to joke with each other, mentioning that all-rounder Abdul Razzaq had a great sense of humor, and they all accepted Daniel very quickly. “Younis Khan used to talk to me a lot, and encouraged me to come to Pakistan,” he said.
When asked about the hairstyles of the Pakistani team, Daniel said, ”Mohammad Rizwan’s hairstyle is quite good, besides Babar Azam’s style is quite trendy. I also like Shaheen’s hairstyle according to his face. Imam-ul-Haq needs to change his hair style.”
