Australia’s wicketkeeper-batter, Alex Carey, has been given a deadline to pay his barber after heading out to feature in the Ashes 2023 in England without paying for his haircut. The barber, Adam Mahmood, has stated that Carey needs to pay £30 after the conclusion of the third Test at Headingley.

Mahmood mentioned that although Carey promised to pay later since he didn’t have any cash on him, the barber is ready to wait for the payment. On the eve of the third Test, Carey visited Doc Barnet’s Barber Shop in Leeds along with his teammates Marnus Labuschagne, David Warner, and Usman Khawaja.

While the others took photos with the barber and paid for their haircuts, Carey refused to be photographed and left without paying. It’s worth noting that the shop doesn’t accept credit cards, so Carey told the barber that he would transfer the money later.

“They all came in just before we shut. We cut their hair and had a great laugh. But we don’t accept cards and Alex said he had no cash on him. Well, there’s a Tesco cash machine literally round the corner he could have run to. He could have nipped back to their hotel and been no more than five minutes but instead, he said he would transfer it. Maybe he forgot. I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt but if it’s not paid by Monday, I won’t be happy,” the barber said.

Nevertheless, Alex Carey’s fellow teammate Steve Smith denied Carey having a haircut since coming to London via his thread on Threads.


Alex Carey has recently faced criticism and has been labeled a “cheat” for stumping England’s Jonny Bairstow in the second Test at Lord’s after the batsman stepped out of his crease to avoid a bouncer from Cameron Green. Despite the debate surrounding the dismissal and its alignment with the Spirit of the Game, Bairstow was ultimately given out by the third umpire.

In the ongoing Headingley Test, Australia managed to dismiss England for 237 runs after scoring 263 in their first innings. Pat Cummins showcased an impressive performance, leading the Australian attack with a six-wicket haul. At the end of Day 2, Australia reached 116/4 in their second innings, with Travis Head (18*) and Mitchell Marsh (17*) at the crease, leading by 142 runs.
