New Zealand’s all-rounder James Neesham is known for his sarcastic nature. Time and again, the skillful cricketer has produced humorous tweets that keep fans hooked to his Twitter account. This time, the 29-year old decided to mock the International Cricket Council (ICC) on the decision to finally scrap the boundary countback rule to decide a winner in case of a tied super-over.
Neesham didn’t take any time to bring up the reference of Titanic and better binoculars for the ice spotters. The frustration hidden behind this joke was understandable as he was on the receiving end earlier this year when England scripted history to claim their maiden 50-over title after beating New Zealand at Lord’s.
Batting first, Kiwis fought hard to reach 241 as they gave themselves some chance. The bowling unit delivered to limit the power-packed English batting line-up to the same score.
Even the scores in the super-over were tied after which hosts were declared winner having hit 26 boundaries as compared to 17 by New Zealand.
