James Neesham, the New Zealand cricketer who is pretty active on social media networks, is presently serving his quarantine after returning from India. He was in India for the IPL 2021 but it got postponed indefinitely after some players and staff members tested COVID-19 positive.
James Neesham was a part of the Mumbai Indians squad but he was included in the playing XI for only one game in which he was not able to open his account while batting and gave away 26 runs while bowling. In the IPL 2020, James was a part of Punjab Kings (earlier Kings XI Punjab) but the franchise released him ahead of the IPL 2021 auctions after his dismal performances in the chances that he was given.
James Neesham has a quite good sense of humour and many times he has shut down the trolls with his wittiness. Recently, he once again displayed his good sense of humour while answering a question posed by a follower.
Usually James Neesham comes to bat in the lower order when there are not enough balls to play and the batsman needs to score at a quick pace. A follower on the micro-blogging site Twitter asked Neesham as to why he doesn’t promote himself in the batting order.
Why don't u promote ur batting order?

To this, the Kiwi cricketer gave a pretty hilarious response as he tweeted, “What, like, on the radio?”

James Neesham made his debut in the national side in 2012 in the shorter format while in test matches, he made debut in 2014. Though he is an important part of the New Zealand’s team for the shorter formats, he has not been able to keep his berth secure in the test team and it was in 2017 that he played his last test match.
Well, that was quite a witty reply from Neesham! What do you say?
