New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham doesn’t shy away from showing his funny side on social media platforms. He often engages with his fans and comes up with hilarious answers and is quite famous in India for his off-the-field antics.
New Zealand all-rounder was recently asked by a fan about the time when he used to bowl faster than Lockie Ferguson. Jimmy Neesham once again showcased his sense of humor on social media and came up with a hilarious response. Neesham said that he used to bowl faster than Ferguson when the latter didn’t even born.
Lockie Ferguson has the ability to hit the 145 kmph mark consistently, with the Kiwi being one of the fastest bowlers around in world cricket presently. James Neesham, meanwhile, is known for his gentle medium-pace bowling between the 120-130 kmph mark.
“Yep, when I was 1 and he wasn’t born I was much quicker,” Jimmy Neesham wrote in reply.

Jimmy Neesham was part of the IPL 2021, which was postponed indefinitely following the outbreak of COVID-19 cases inside teams’ bio-bubbles. Neesham moved to the Mumbai Indians (MI) this season after being bought by the franchise at the 2021 IPL Auction in February. The 30-year-old has played just one game, featuring against the Chennai Super Kings.
Neesham had a terrible outing as he scored a duck, while also conceding 26 runs in his two overs. Nevertheless, MI prevailed in an enthralling encounter, thanks to Kieron Pollard’s heroics. Mumbai Indians were placed in the fourth spot in the IPL 2021 points table before the tournament was suspended.
Jimmy Neesham is currently undergoing quarantine in the UK ahead of the two-match Test series against England followed by the ICC World Test Championship final against India.
