The former Australian cricketer and powerful left-hand opening batsmen, Matthew Hayden, played a prominent role during his successful participation with the Chennai Super Kings from 2008-10. He is currently busy with the commentary duties in the ongoing 12th edition of the IPL.
Yesterday, Hayden posted an update on his Instagram page where he was seen wearing South-Indian apparel, lungi. He hid his identity by donning a fake beard, mustache and a fisherman's hat. In a complete disguise, he went to Chennai's T Nagar lanes to do some shopping. A local boy is said to have helped him to shop like a boss and Hayden paid Rs.100 to him later.
It is surprising to see how Hayden adapted local mannerisms effortlessly and he also mastered the art of bargaining as he bought a watch worth Rs. 200 for Rs. 180. "Bit of undercover shopping at T Nagar Street Mall in Chennai," he wrote on his Instagram page.
Later, the cricketer also revealed that Shane Warne had challenged him to buy Chennai stuff for under Rs.1000. "It was a challenge by Warne to buy items for under Rs 1000. That's why I went around the market to buy some lungis, shirts, Rajini sunnies and a watch," he quoted.
Two days ago, Mathew has brought the internet together when his pictures on playing gully cricket with Chennai local boys went viral. Looks like the cricketer is making the fullest with this trip to india.
