New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham has displayed explosive batting in the ongoing County Championship season. While playing for Northamptonshire, Neesham blasted 91 runs from just 101 balls to help Notts reach a total of 284 runs with a loss of 5 wickets at stumps on Day 3.
Later when Jimmy Neesham reacted to the video, he used the term “BazBall”. Notably, the term BazBall became famous among cricket fans after Ben Stokes-led England played aggressive cricket under head coach Brendon McCullum.
After winning the Test series against New Zealand 3-0, the Three Lions completed a record chase against India in the fifth rescheduled Test. However, former Kiwi skipper McCullum has called “BazBall” a ‘silly term’.
Northamptonshire took to Twitter to post a video of Jimmy Neesham’s quickfire and wrote, “So it turns out @JimmyNeesh hits a red ball super hard too. An eye-catching 91 from just 101 balls today.”
The 31-year-old all-rounder retweeted his batting highlights and captioned, “#BazBall.”
