New Delhi: New Zealand won by 5 wickets in the second ODI against Bangladesh played in Christchurch. With this victory, New Zealand has now taken a 2–0 Ajay lead in this series. During the Bangladesh innings in this match, New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham scored Tamim Iqbal in a surprising way. A video of this run-out of Nisham has been posted on the social media by the New Zealand Cricket Board.
Runout was done with no hands and feet
In fact, during the 32nd over of Bangladesh’s innings, Mushfiqur Rahim tried to run by playing the ball of James Neesham with a light hand. Tamim Iqbal also escaped from the nonstrike, but then Neesham struck the ball with his feet in a unique style and crashed into the wickets. Tamim (Tamim Iqbal) could not reach his crease till then and he was forced to return to the pavilion.
This run out of James Neesham was so good that a video of it is becoming fiercely viral on social media. People are reacting differently to Neesham’s run out. This runout of Neesham was also special because Tamim (Tamim Iqbal) was playing 78 at that time and he could complete his century and lead his team to a big score.
