Campaigners say Beard Impact could be crucial to deciding cricket World T20 winner(mens)


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, that campaigns against beardism, irrational prejudice against the hirsute, has said that Beard Impact on the field could be crucial in determining the winner of the cricket World T20 winner (mens).

The campaigners say that with just twenty overs a side beard impact can be much more unpredictable than in longer forms of the game. For example England’s Moeen Ali was named Man of the Match against Afghanistan but was underwhelming in the narrow victory over Sri Lanka

It is the overall impact of a team’s hirsuteness in terms of bat, ball and field that is the key to understanding Beard Impact.

Key things to look out for are:

Batting: the deployment of the beard as the bowler runs up can distract him allowing an ill directed ball that can be hit for six

Bowling: the movement of the beard during the bowler’s run-up can create air currents which influence the trajectory of the ball in ways it becomes impossible for the batsman to predict

Fielding: the ball can add an extra element of balance, allowing the fielder to catch difficult chances and stop boundaries.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, of course Beard Impact is not the only issue which will determine the outcome of the World T20 but beard power can be decisive in the short form of cricket
