The 44-year-old has actually taken up ‘Save The Rhino’ challenge in South Africa which required him to shave off half his facial and chest hair in order to raise awareness and money to save the rhino population in the country. Save The Rhino is a non-profit organisation working towards protecting the animal.

He is the only player to score more than 10,000 runs and pick up 250 wickets in both Tests and ODIs.
