Shane Warne explains why he’s been wearing flat caps while commentating on cricket as he denies fan theories that he’s going bald

He’s made the flat cap a wardrobe staple in recent months, and Shane Warne has spoken about the inspiration behind his choice of hat.

Appearing on Fox Cricket on Thursday, the 51-year-old former cricketer sat on a panel dressed in a suit and a grey flat cap.

After being quizzed about his cap, Shane denied fan theories he was the victim of a bad haircut or was losing his hair.

‘There’s nothing wrong with the hair, the hair is looking great,’ he insisted, as re-reported by Nine’s Wide World of Sports, before revealing the inspiration behind his cap.

Shane said he first wore the cap when he played golf in the Cathedral Cup, explaining that there was a blue team and a red team.

He then showed off a red dog, which had been embroidered onto the back of his cap, for the red team.

But he said it was his love of the TV show, Peaky Blinders, which inspired him to keep wearing it long after the golf tournament had ended. 

The British period drama stars Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy, and many of the characters wear flat caps. 

‘We all played in the cap, I liked it, and I love Peaky Blinders so I thought I don’t mind the look of it and I might wear it to see if people like it and people have liked it, so I kept wearing it,’ he added.

‘I want to be in Peaky Blinders. Please can I be in Peaky Blinders? Some sort of role, I would really like it.’

It’s not the first time Shane has been quizzed about his flat cap while opening up about his love of Peaky Blinders.

He wore the cap for the first test match last month, where he again said he was wearing the cap ‘out of respect’ for Peaky Blinders.
