Jimmy Neesham is an exciting social media personality. He loves his social media game and banter and uses it to not only be unapologetically himself but also engage and entertain his fans. The New Zealand cricketer who was purchased by Rajasthan Royals at the IPL 2022 Mega Auction stayed to his reputation and gave his national and Sunrisers Hyderabad team captain Kane Williamson a “hot tip” that is going viral.
Notably, both Neesham and Williamson will be in the opposing dugouts when SunRisers Hyderabad play Rajasthan Royals at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Tuesday. With both sides preparing for their game at this venue, Neesham suggested a particular Pune dish that he could try. “Hot tip: the club sandwich in Pune is outstanding,” he wrote as a comment on Williamson’s picture dressing in the Orange kit of the SRH.

SRH failed to retain Rashid Khan in their team as the two parties could not reach an agreement. As a result, they are now expecting Washington Sundar to step up and perform.
“I feel that Washington is India’s leading off-spinner in limited-overs cricket right now. He’s the future of Indian cricket. I’ll take proper care of him,” SRH spin-bowling coach Muttiah Muralitharan said as per an Inside Sport report.
“Rashid is a great bowler and an amazing person to work with. We wanted to retain him at a high price, but he wanted a better offer. That’s completely fair. We’re a bit disappointed because we don’t have him in our team. We tried our best [to retain him], but Ahmedabad [Gujarat Titans] gave him a better contract. I wish him all the best for his new journey,” he added.
J Suchith and Shreyas Gopal are the other spinning options SRH can turn to this season.
