 Andrew Symonds Previous Hairstyle is History: Leukemia Benefits from Haircut
In a bid to persuade the whole world of his 'turning over a new leaf' conviction and as an additional benefit to the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia, much-in-news-for-all-the-wrong-reasons Oz cricketer Andrew Symonds has shred his dreadlocks to raise 10,000 dollars for a charitable deed.

The Courier Mail quoted his agent, Matt Fearon, as saying that the Queensland all rounder, who hadn't "seen his own head for about five years", had gone in with "the normal nerves about a new look".

"He's looking fresh; I think he looks more responsible. Certainly, he's more streamlined," Fearon added.

Symonds raised 2500 dollars off his own bat and hair salon maven Stefan Ackerie stepped in with a 7500 dollar cheque to help the cricketer achieve his goal of 10,000 dollars.

Symonds is hoping his newly shaved dome heralds a reversal of fortune that will put him back in the baggy green in time for this year's Ashes tour of England.

The cricketer, whose locks were the most recognisable in the modern game, underwent the chop live on morning TV yesterday.
