CPL 2019: Brendon McCullum tries to troll James Neesham, gets a hilarious reply for his comment
New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham is a star both on and off the field. Pretty active on social media, especially Twitter, his witty tweets have helped him earn a tremendous fan following.
Neesham was the in-form player for New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup. However, post the heartbreaking loss to England in the final, he was disappointed and asked kids not to take up cricket as a career.
Recently, a page called ‘radioactive’ uploaded an image, saying that they have found someone who could essay the role of James in the movie, based on the 2019 World Cup.
The caption read: “@JimmyNeesh found someone who could play your role in Black Caps CWC 2019 based movie.”

The 28-year-old liked the tweet and replied: “Yep, hell of a way to put someone in a good mood.”

Meanwhile, former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum leaped in and mischievously posted a picture of an animal alongside the photo of Neesham.
He captioned it: “Prefer this personally.”

The flamboyant left-hander responded brilliantly, calling the 37-year-old as ‘Grandpa’.
He wrote: “Good to see grandpa finally figured out how to upload a photo.”

McCullum announced retirement from international cricket in 2016 but continued playing franchise cricket till 2019. While Neesham is currently playing for Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2019, McCullum is serving as the head coach of the same team.
