Kiwi Allrounder Jimmy Neesham who is currently playing for the Kings XI Punjab in the ongoing IPL 2020 in Dubai wasn’t able to perform well in the 13th edition of the IPL and is trying to get into the form.
By far in this season, Neesham played 3 matches in which he scored 7 runs and bowled 10 overs in which he took only one wicket with an economy rate of 10.50. with his bad performance, Neesham is getting heavily trolled on social media.
Former Indian Cricketer and commentator Aakash Chopra also criticized Jimmy Neesham by stating that he isn’t a great finisher and can’t bowl in the powerplay and in the death overs.
“They play Neesham, an overseas fast bowler, who neither bowls in the powerplay nor in the death overs. He is neither a great finisher nor a big batsman who bats in the top four or five. So why is Kings XI Punjab playing him? You are playing a player who is not really a match-winner,” Chopra said the quoted on his Youtube channel.
Soon, the fans started sharing it all over the social media and Jimmy Neesham responded to it by taking a dig at the T20 stats of the Aakash Chopra.
Jimmy Neesham Tweeted the following “Averaging 18.5 striking at 90 doesn’t win many matches either“
For this, Aakash Chopra responded by stating “Correct my friend. That’s why nobody picks me anymore. I get paid for doing something else. I’m glad that you don’t have an issue with my observations but with my cricket stats. Go well for the rest of the #IPL,” the tweet read.

Exactly Neesh. That's why is sitting in the comm box and not being padded up. So was your comment really necessary? Aakash is doing his job and doing it really well. https://t.co/u9vWSS52kR

There was no reason for Jimmy Neesham to slam @cricketaakash with those words. He could have instead opted to do with his performance which would have even earned Aakash Chopra's appreciation. #IPL2020 #IPL https://t.co/WL9DRbPfG4
