With cricket action all around the world currently suspended, several cricketers have been spending their times by interacting with fans on social media. In the last few weeks, the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and several others took to social media platforms to connect with the fans.

And recently, New Zealand allrounder Jimmy Neesham, who is one of the most popular cricketers on social media, interacted with the fans too albeit in an innovative manner. He took over the Kings XI Punjab handle for a couple of hours on Tuesday to answer a few questions from the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise’s fans.

As expected, the fans asked him some very interesting questions. The questions ranged from last year’s World Cup final to IPL 2020 title expectations and Jimmy Neesham answered most of them.

When asked how he would have felt if he had played for England in the World Cup final, James Neesham said he would have probably felt a ‘little better’. The allrounder was at the crease when New Zealand lost the final in a heartbreaking manner after the game ended in a tie. After the super over also ended in a tie, England were declared World Cup 2019 winners for hitting more number of boundaries.

He was also asked about the infamous overthrow incident that saw England being awarded six runs in the final over when they needed 15 runs. When a fan asked him what he would have done following the overthrow had he been the umpire, he hilariously said: “Minus 50 runs”.

Best World Cup memory:

One of the fans also asked him to reveal his favourite memory from last year’s World Cup. In reply, Jimmy Neesham said beating India and the scenes that followed in the New Zealand dressing room in the semifinal remains his favourite memories from the tournament.
