Jimmy Neesham continues to prove he is the most fun cricketer on Twitter
Jimmy Neesham is known for this banter-filled tweets and replies on microblogging platform, Twitter. He is one to never shy away from making his thoughts known. This is what makes him the most fun cricketer to follow on Twitter.
During the first ODI between India and Australia at the WACA in Perth, Neesham was on his usual routine of responding to his followers and trolling them.
A fan of Neesham from India asked the New Zealand all-rounder to say something derogatory in Hindi. But, the 25-year-old was not one to be fooled and responded in a brilliant manner.
Neesham made sure not to fall for the trap, like how South African all-rounder JP Duminy did when an Indian fan asked Duminy to retweet the same derogatory remark about the infamous Kamaal R Khan.
The fan, who probably was flustered, later deleted the tweet. However, the tweet was not deleted soon enough and we all know how unforgiving the internet can be.
Following this epic tweet from Neesham, a fan who was impressed praised the all-rounder expecting a positive response from him. But, Neesham saw the funny side to what the fan tweeted.
Haha I love how this is probably a genuine tweet but it absolutely reeks of sarcasm https://t.co/10Lg4Fh0Mr— Jimmy Neesham (@JimmyNeesh) January 12, 2016
Another fan asked if Neesham knew Hindi and the Kiwi did not disappoint with his response.
I've picked up words here and there. Just the bad ones! https://t.co/oeiBltmkbG— Jimmy Neesham (@JimmyNeesh) January 12, 2016
When a fan mentioned the George Bailey incident from the first ODI, Neesham subtly took a sarcastic dig at the BCCI's unwillingness to approve the use of DRS.
Someone really needs to invent some sort of system to review the umpire's decision. https://t.co/dgZb5t2C6z— Jimmy Neesham (@JimmyNeesh) January 12, 2016
To this, the same fan claimed that if a batsman does not walk after he knows it's out, makes the batsman a cheat.
Neesham shut the fan up in brilliant fashion taking a gibe at the person's profile picture.
Whether you have a point or not is irrelevant. I can't talk to you until you change your profile picture. https://t.co/1G2nxJFp2o— Jimmy Neesham (@JimmyNeesh) January 12, 2016
It goes without saying that Jimmy Neesham is an entertainer both on and off the pitch. Being marred by injuries of late has kept him away from the national squad for a while now. He will be hoping that he can regain full fitness and be a regular in the New Zealand squad.
On the other hand, Neesham not being on national duty might turn out to be good for his followers on Twitter as he has more time on his hand to entertain all his fans and followers.
