Guards: James Neesham executes ‘coldest run-out ever’ | Screenplay
- James Neesham put in a brilliant run in the second ODI between New Zealand and Bangladesh
- Neesham Tamim Iqbal ran out using just his feet
- Tamim was the game’s top scorer for Bangladesh, scoring 78 off 108
James Neesham, a player from New Zealand, remains one of the coolest cricketers on social media. His puns, jokes and witty take on cricket issues often follow fans but on Tuesday, it was his hilarious run Tamim Iqbal from Bangladesh that wowed fans.
Iqbal had been living in an intimate affair earlier when the third umpire thought he was out despite despite apparently Kyle Jamieson catching a clean catch. The Bangladesh opening bat counted the lifeline count and went on to get 78 runs off 108 deliveries.
The veterans ’bat seemed to turn even the most impressive knock into a half-century but with a little mixing in the middle of the pitch it ran out.
That was Mushfiqur Rahim with whom Tamim bathed in the middle. Both participants tried gracefully singles but ended up disrespecting Neesham’s skills with their feet.
The Kiwi star did not spend time bending down to pick up the ball and instead used his leg to steer the ball towards the stocks. Neesham’s effort brought the perfect benefits as Tamim was found short of his crease.
The Blackcaps Twitter account shared the video of the breakup with rather strange text. Here is the post:
Bangladesh did very well in getting weather from storm Kiwi. Led by Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Mithun’s 78 and 73 respectively, the Bangla Tigers put a total of 271 runs on the board in 50 overs. Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim played good little cameos, scoring 32 and 34 respectively.
For New Zealand, Mitchell Santner was the mattresses ’pick, taking 2 wickets while Trent Boult, Matt Henry and Kyle Jamieson picked up one wicket each.
New Zealand regular captain Kane Williamson is not part of the series due to elbow injuries. Without him, Tom Latham has become the captain. The Kiwis have already won the first ODI of the 3-game series and are looking for a lead not found in the second.
