The Beard Liberation Front the informal network of beard wearers has said that England cricketer Jonny Bairstow will still be eligible to compete for Beard of the Year in December despite shaving his trademark beard.

Bairstow played for England against Pakistan at Leeds on 1st September without his trademark beard. The campaigners say his lack of a beard could potentially impact on the gravitas and aerodynamic qualities of his game.

BLF organiser Keith Flett said, if Jonny Bairstow wants to shave his beard we have no complaint. It his personal choice. However his beard has become an icon of English cricket this year and he could still be up for Beard of the Year later
