New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham is one of the most entertaining cricketers ever. The Kiwi player is known for his sense of humor, and his trademark comedic side was once again evident following Sunday’s T20 match against Australia.
After New Zealand won the T20 against Australia by convincing seven-wicket at Wellington’s Sky Stadium, Glenn Maxwell and Jimmy Neesham, both the all-rounders exchanged jerseys and Neesham wrote a hilarious message on the jersey he gifted to Maxwell.
The picture of both the cricketers standing with each other’s jersey soon went viral on social media and the fans were quick to notice a hidden message written by Neesham on his jersey. The hidden message read – 4,6,4,4,6 and it didn’t take the fans long to realize the meaning of the message.
Well, for the unversed, during the third T20I of the series, Glenn Maxwell smashed Neesham to the cleaners. It was in the 17th over of the game, when Maxwell smashed Neesham in the same order he wrote in the message and collected 28 runs off the over. As a result, Neesham finished the match with bowling figures of 0 for 60.
Soon after his performance, the Kiwi player was brutally trolled by the fans on social media. However, the 30-year-old seemingly knows how to laugh at his own misfortunes. He gifted a piece of memorabilia so he never forgets the chaotic over in Wellington.
