In the 35 second video, Neesham was seen delightfully cutting the cake. Soon after, the cake was applied to his face as a part of the customary celebration.
“We have got training mate. Can’t have chocolate all over my kit,” Neesham said on being inquired as to why he is wearing the plastic sheet over his kit.
Neesham was bought by Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2021 auctions for INR 50 lakh. He played just one match for the side where he bowled two overs. He was quite expensive with the ball where he returned with an economy of 13.
