Video: Neesham plays reverse sweep and retires hurt
During the unofficial match between New Zealand A and India A, Jimmy Neesham was rather unfortunate while trying to play a shot. Even though he was playing for New Zealand-A side, he got retired hurt after hurting himself while going for the reverse sweep shot in the match against India-A.
He hit himself in such a way that he had to undergo a head assessment before coming back to the crease.
The Kiwi player also uploaded the picture on Twitter with a caption which read, “Got fixed up good today! Lesson: don’t reverse sweep up into your own face.”

Neesham’s cut looked a bit deep and after his tweet, he received a great response from fans as they showed concern. Even former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum also left a remark on Jimmy Neesham’s post.
Newzealand-A convincingly won the game against the Indian side, even though the main team failed miserably to do the same in the T20 fixture.
The top order of the Indian team failed soon enough and did not offer stability to the innings. Krunal Pandya scored a fifty but his effort went in vain as India A lost the match.
