The fiery Kiwi all-rounder, Jimmy Neesham has always been known for his savage replies to fans on various social media platforms. A fan recently asked Neesham what he thought of Pakistan batsman Fawad Alam, only to receive an unexpected reply from the Blackcaps all-rounder.
Yesterday in Kingston, Fawad Alam played a phenomenal knock of 56 runs that helped Pakistan to a reach decent total of 217 runs in their ICC World Test Championship series opener against the West Indies. Alam came out to bat in the 32nd over of the innings and stayed until the last over of the Pakistan innings.
None of his teammates managed to surpass the tally of 50 runs, but Fawad fought like a lone warrior and guided Pakistan managed to get past the 200-run mark. Seeing Fawad’s fighting knock, a Twitter user named Saad Umar asked Jimmy Neesham: “Your thoughts on Fawad Alam? The man is a fighter, isn’t he?” Jimmy Neesham avoided the question in a way only he can, as he replied: “I thought he was a cricketer.”
