He cleared the air in the 2nd carousel mentioning, “Bowling to @riyanhparag in the nets.” He also posted a video in the 2nd story carousel where he could be seen bowling to Riyan Parag. Jimmy Neesham bowled a half-volley to Riyan Parag, and the young Indian all-rounder smashed it straight towards the bowler.

Jimmy Neesham is yet to make his debut for the Royals from Rajasthan. However, the New Zealand all-rounder is expected to be included in the playing 11 against Lucknow Super Giants. Neesham is likely to strengthen the Royals’ middle-order and bowling if given a chance.

Rajasthan Royals will look to get back to the winning ways

The Royals began their season brilliantly with back-to-back wins against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians by 61 runs and 23 runs, respectively. However, the Royals in blue were stunned by the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 4 wickets in the last game. The Jaipur-based franchise will next face Lucknow Super Giants and will try to get back to the winning ways.

Rajasthan Royals have lacked a good 6th bowling option in their ranks, and they are expected to turn to Jimmy Neesham to fill the void. The Jaipur-based franchise signed the Kiwi all-rounder for a sum of INR 1.5 crore. If given a chance, Neesham will try to prove his utility to his side to get a long rope from the management.
