Jimmy Anderson & Moeen split hairs in England Cricket Team Beard Index

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has issued an update to its England cricket Beard Index which shows Moeen Ali and Jimmy Anderson tied with Ian Bell and Alastair Cook moving up the rankings

Hirsute England players have only recently been a significant factor in the team’s performance but the campaigners say that facial hair on the pitch can have several, sometimes combined, impacts:

1] Beards can add gravitas and presence. Moeen is known as ‘the beard that’s feared’
2] Beards can influence aerodynamics both with bat and ball as a movement of the facial hair can cause subtle changes to air currents

Beard Index [combining factors 1 & 2] out of 10

Moeen 9
Anderson 9
Bell 6
Cook 6
Broad 4
Plunkett 4
Prior retired due to beard injury

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, One way or another Jimmy Anderson and Moeen’s beards have made an impact at the Rose Bowl and that’s reflected in the ratings

  1. Surely the BLF should be defending Ali’s position on Gaza against the foul racist vermin in the ICC.

  2. Position defended extensively on Twitter from yesterday afternoon where more immediate impact is made

  3. Reblogged this on In the Dark and commented:
    Important poll on the Beard Index for England’s cricketers..
