Kiwi all-rounder James Neesham is quite a popular figure on social media owing to his interesting tweets and comments on players’ posts. It happened during day two of the India-New Zealand Test at Kanpur when Neesham bagged the limelight once again. Neesham posted a tweet referring to his teammate Tom Latham who gave a rock-solid start to his team against the hosts.
During day two of the Kanpur Test, Latham scored an unbeaten fifty off 165 balls to make his team’s case strong. However, he was given out by the on-field umpire during the 56th over of Kiwi’s innings. Ravi Ashwin placed a delivery and went on to appeal for the wickets but DRS saved Latham. It was the call for caught behind but the DRS showed no bat involved and Neesham stated, “If Tom Latham goes on to score a century, India might go back to refusing to use DRS at home.”
Wasim Jaffer’s dig at Jimmy Neesham wins the attention of netizens
However, taking the look at the tweet, former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer joined the party. It is known for all that Jaffer is best when it comes to posting funny stuff on social media and keeping his fans entertained. He posted a picture of umpire Kumar Dharmasena and clubbed it with a meme. The caption of his post read, “We like DRS Jimmy, both the system and the human.”
Dharmasena’s picture showed, ‘Hello I’m, Dharmasena, friends call me DRS’ written on it.

Talking of day three of the Kanpur Test, New Zealand stumbled from 197/2 to 241/5 in a quick span as Axar Patel flaunted his class. India have come to bat again and are currently marching up with a lead of 63 runs.
“I felt New Zealand played a waiting game. There has to be one batter at least who should take responsibility and accelerate the game. They could have scored a little quickly. If bowlers pick one wicket and a new batter comes in, it is very difficult for him to start from scratch and that is when panic kicks in. NZ missed a trick here and Rahane did a fine job in managing the field,” said Jaffer earlier while speaking to ESPNcricinfo on NZ’s performance.
