New Zealand’s dejected all-rounder Jimmy Neesham in a heartbreaking message advised kids “not to take up sport” as he hoped to find at least a day or two in the next decade when the nerve-racking World Cup loss to England will not rattle him.
In the most swash-buckling game of margins in the history of cricket, when the England cricket team hoisted their maiden trophy, no sane cricket fan anywhere in the world could claim that New Zealand deserved to lose.
The heartbreak of Kiwis is unimaginable and everyone has their own way of coping. All-rounder Jimmy Neesham who literally had their team’s world cup fate in the palm of his hands when he came to bat in the super over, did not try to conceal his disappointment and sadness as he took on to Twitter saying, “Kids, don’t take up sport. Take up baking or something. Die at 60 really fat and happy.”
The 28-year-old, who picked up three wickets in the finals, apologized to the fans for not delivering what would have been New Zealand’s maiden World Cup triumph.
