Australian pace sensation Mitchell Johnson has reportedly opted to keep his famous moustache for the duration of the three-Test series with South Africa.
According to Sport24, the fast bowler sported the moustache during his country’s 5-0 Ashes drubbing of the hapless English and has elected to give his razor wide berth ahead of the first Test against the No 1-ranked South Africa starting on Wednesday, February 12 at Centurion Park.
Johnson is reportedly prepared to keep memories of his 2009 South Africa tour, which marked his decline, at bay and feel confident after the dominant Ashes series.
However, he has warned teammates that they could not afford to be content with their dominance against England in the recently concluded series, comparing it to the 2009 situation.
