New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham, who is known for his funny comments on social media, hilariously trolled India opener Mayank Agarwal after the latter posted a photo from a training session on social media. The star batsman has been warming benches in the ongoing Test series against England but is sweating out in the gym to keep himself fit.
With the series tied at 2-1 in favour of the host, both teams are gearing up for the fourth and final match of the Test series scheduled to commence on March 4 (Thursday) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Virat Kohli & Co will now need at least to draw the last tie to progress through to the finals of the ICC World Test Championship where they face New Zealand later this year.
Meanwhile, in the glaring presence of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill, Mayank Agarwal has found it difficult to make his way to the playing XI. However, he is not leaving any stones unturned to keep himself ready for an opportunity.
Agarwal, who is part of the Indian Test squad for the ongoing England Test series, posted a photo on social media while training.
“It’s about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that’s where transformation happens. #workhardplayhard #mondaymotivation,” he captioned it.
James Neesham pulls hilarious prank on Mayank Agarwal
Meanwhile, New Zealand cricketer James Neesham is undoubtedly one of the funniest cricketers on social media. He has a legion of fans on both Instagram and Twitter only because of his wit and funny quips. Also, he is not afraid to roast and troll his fellow cricketers, and this time the target was his Punjab Kings’ teammate Mayank Agarwal.
Neesham was with Mayank in the Kings XI Punjab (now known as Punjab Kings) in IPL 2020 and share a close bond with him. This time he will turn out for Mumbai Indians but that didn’t stop James Neesham from pulling a prank on his former teammate.
