James Neesham, the New Zealand all-rounder, is always at the forefront when it comes to the social media sphere. More often than not, his tweets and Instagram posts leave his followers in splits. This humorous side of Neesham is no surprise to social media users as his tweets are consistently in the trending section. Once again, he has startled his followers by posting an Instagram story.

His Instagram story carousel has two slides in which he has mentions, “I would hereby like to announce my retirement from” and in the next slide he continues “Bowling to @riyanhparag in the nets” with a clip of him bowling to his Rajasthan Royals mate Riyan Parag and getting hit on the forehead while practicing in the nets. Though Neesham was not injured, the hit did look nasty. He was bowling to Parag in the nets and as soon as he delivered and was about to finish his follow-through, he got hit on the side of the forehead.

Neesham is likely to be in the Rajasthan Royals playing XI for their upcoming game against Lucknow Super Giants, which is to take on 10th April, Sunday, at the Wankhede Stadium. He might be given a chance to strengthen their lower-middle order as it seems to be an area of concern for the Royals.

Their last game was a losing effort as they lost to Royal Challengers Banglore by four wickets at the Wankhede. They are currently placed at the 4th position on the points table, having won two out of three games till now.

Well, one can say that there’s always something happening in the world of Jimmy Neesham. But what is important for the Royals’ fans is the availability of Neesham for their upcoming game against LSG as he is certainly an asset for the Royals.
