The IPL 2021 is not just one of the biggest cricketing events of the world but it is one of the most competitive tournaments as well. While many big names of the cricketing world remained unsold during the IPL 2021 auctions, there are a number of big players who have not been able to make a place in the playing eleven despite the fact that each team has played their 6-7 league matches.
Jimmy Neesham, the New Zealand all-rounder who was purchased by Mumbai Indians in the auctions for the league, is also waiting for his turn to get included in the playing eleven. Jimmy is also known for his online presence and for his wittiness which he displays while having banter with his followers or colleagues.
Recently, a fan asks Jimmy to improve his hard-hitting skills so that he can find a place in playing XI. The fan also says that it is highly disappointing not just for Jimmy but for his fans that he is warming the bench.
This is what the online user tweeted, “You should work on your hard hitting abilities. You are a perfect ODI All-rounder but you need to improve your hard hitting abilities to cement a place in the t20 playing XI. It’s so disappointing for you and us as well that Player like you warming the bench.”

Well, Jimmy Neesham knows how to give a perfect reply and he responded to the fan by sharing a tweet by Wisden Cricket which showed his stats on the basis of which Jimmy was signed by Essex Cricket for the County Cricket 2021.

As far as Mumbai Indians is concerned, the defending champion is going through a very tough phase as it is on the 4th spot with 3 wins and 3 defeats in the 6 matches that it has played. Rohit Sharma led five time champion is not looking like the team which was the favourites to win the IPL 2021 at the beginning of the tournament.
The reply by Jimmy Neesham was quite good! What do you say?
