New Zealand Cricket almost created a storm on the internet the other day with a “breaking news”. The NZC took to Twitter to share the news of the departure of Colin de Grandhomme’s “famous” mullet. The sensational choice of words by the Black Caps admin had the fans in a frenzy early on.
“BREAKING NEWS. The famous Colin de Grandhomme mullet is no more. #PAKvNZ #CricketNation,” the account tweeted. Are wondering how a change in Grandhomme’s haircut could shock fans? Soe fans casually glanced through the post and missed the very important detail that the mullet was no more, not the Kiwi cricketer.
Fan’s react to the Colin de Grandhomme’s news
Colin de Grandhomme’s mullet gained attention ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC). The Kiwi all-rounder was seen flaunting the old fashioned mullet as he lifted the trophy in the inaugural edition of the competition. But Grandhomme has decided not to stick with the fancy haircut as he has cropped it short ahead of the Pakistan series.
NZC’s peculiar way of breaking the news had the fans dumbstruck. Assuming the demise of the all-rounder, netizens started sending in their condolences. While others were quick to grasp the news and went on to crack jokes on the choice of words that could fool anyone.
New Zealand is currently stationed in Pakistan where they will be playing three ODIs and five T20Is. The ODI series will not be part of the World Cup qualifying campaign due to the absence of DRS. The Pakistan tour will be New Zealand’s final frontier ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup.
