When it comes to ruling Twitter, very few can beat the New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham. While cricketers all over the world post videos of themselves sweating it out in gyms or the nets to gear themselves, Neesham leaves no stone unturned in giving some epic and sarcastic replies to his fans.
And in his latest tweet, has trolled the fans with regards to the famous “rock, paper, scissors” combination.
“Rock, paper, scissors” is a simple game in which the participants do gestures using their hands. For rock, they close their fists, for paper, they open it, and finally for scissors they have to display the first two fingers. The sport is normally taken up in order to win any bet. While the chronology generally goes as “rock, paper, scissors”, the Black Caps’ all-rounder prefers saying it as “paper, scissors, rock” which fans named it wrong.
To those who labelled the 29-year old’s chronology as incorrect, he first commented about the differences in saying comes due to their cultures, upbringings, and region while also saying it isn’t a big deal.
Secondly, Neesham also conceded that they are wrong and he is right, on the contrary.
Below is James Neesham’s ‘Paper, scissors, rock’ tweet:
A lot of people tweeting me saying I got the saying “paper, scissors, rock” wrong.
Firstly, cultures differ widely, so sayings are likely to have subtle differences based on what region you grew up in. It’s not a big deal.
Secondly, you’re all wrong you idiots
