New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham is popular for his savage replies to fans on Twitter. A fan recently asked Neesham what he thought of Pakistan batsman Fawad Alam, only to receive an unexpected reply from the Blackcaps player.
Yesterday in Kingston, Fawad Alam played a fantastic knock of 56 runs that helped Pakistan post a 217-run total in their ICC World Test Championship series opener against the West Indies. Alam came out to bat in the 32nd over and stayed until the last over of the Pakistan innings.
None of his teammates could touch the 50-run mark, but Fawad fought like a lone warrior and guided Pakistan past 200. Seeing Fawad's fighting knock, a Twitter user named Saad Umar asked Jimmy Neesham:
"Your thoughts on Fawad Alam? The man is a fighter, isn't he?"
Jimmy Neesham avoided the question in a way only he can, as he replied:
"I thought he was a cricketer."
Jimmy Neesham's reply to that question about Fawad Alam has received over 2,500 likes on the micro-blogging platform. Quite a few Twitter users have retweeted Neesham's witty response as well.
Meanwhile, a few fans of the Pakistan team were unhappy after seeing the Kiwi all-rounder's reply.
