James Neesham lampoons himself after hurting his chin against India A

Posted On

Widely popular for his funny takes on almost everything, New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham never misses any chance to tease people with his unique sarcasm. Neesham once again came up with a witty post on Twitter, however, this time, he mocked himself.


The left-handed batsman is currently a part of New Zealand A team, which is taking on the challenge of India A side in the three-match unofficial ODI, and two-match unofficial Test series.

During the second unofficial ODI game, Neesham got retired-hurt after he attempted a reverse sweep, but the ball ended up hitting his face.



Later after the game, Neesham posted a picture on social media showing the cut on his face. As usual, the 29-year-old captioned the post in his own exceptional way.

“Got fixed up good today! Lesson: don’t reverse sweep up into your own face,” tweeted Neesham.

The post received some funny replies, along with some wishing the southpaw to recover quickly.


Former Kiwi captain Brendon McCullum also responded to the tweet and wrote “#Carryon.”

Neesham playfully took the tweet and said, “Game wasn’t on tv, had to let everyone know how hard I am somehow! #carryonking.”

In the match, New Zealand posted 295-7 with George Worker smashing 135 and Cole McConchie 55. Neesham played a handy knock of 31-ball 33. In reply, India only managed to score 266-9 and lost the contest by 29 runs.
