Although the whole of New Zealand team is quite a bunch of gentlemen, known for their calm and humorous attitude. Jimmy Neesham, the pace -bowling all-rounder, is one of the happiest and funniest faces in Cricket. This is the reason he is one of the most popular cricketers on Social Media. With not much to do in the lockdown, he was quite an entertainer on social media lately.
The pace all-rounder is currently representing Kings XI team in #Dream11 IPL2020. It is his first season with the Punjab-based outfit. After missing out in the first match, the 30-year old was included in the playing XI against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Neesham was included in place of Chris Jordan, who had a forgettable outing against Delhi Capitals.
Playing as an all-rounder, Jimmy Neesham did not get to bat in the first innings. After being put in to bat first, KXIP posted a huge score of 206-3 as captain KL Rahul played a magnificent knock of 132 runs with the help of 14 boundaries and as many as 7 sixes.
KXIP were again brilliant with the ball in second innings as they bowled out RCB for a paltry 109 runs in 17 overs to clinch the match by 97 runs. Though Neesham conceded only 13 runs in the two overs -he bowled, he remained wicketless on a night when all of the KXIP bowlers except Neesham got their name in wicket column.
This is where a fan tried to troll, Neesham on Twitter. The fan tweeted: “I took you as my Dream11 vice-captain, You didn’t bat or didn’t take any wicket, Lost all money on you,” complaining to the all-rounder.
In reply, Neesham was his usual self as as he posted a popular Gif from American sitcom Friends which read, “Oh! I don’t care.”
