In Dada, Yuvraj finds a way to use his unutilised hair gel

Yuvraj Singh has finally found a way to make sure the hair gel lying unused in his cupboard is not completely wasted.

The Punjab cricketer, known for experimenting with hairdos, has gone completely bald following chemotherapy sessions in his battle against cancer.

In his absence, Yuvraj's former India captain Sourav Ganguly is leading Pune in this year's Indian Premier League and the 39-year-old provided what could be the lasting memory of IPL5 after castling Delhi's Kevin Pietersen at Ferozeshah Kotla on April 21.

Ganguly darted across the field at a speed unexpected of a cricketer never known for his athleticism even in his prime, pumping air and jumping in joy, his thinning hair dishevelled by the evening wind.
