When it comes to expressing opinions freely on social media, there are quite a few cricket personalities who made a name for themselves on Twitter. England has Michael Vaughan, India has Wasim Jaffer and Virender Sehwag.
But those aforementioned names are former cricketers. They are free to express their opinions. At times, those opinions turn out to be a controversy, especially when Michael Vaughan posts a tweet on his handle.
On the other hand, Wasim Jaffer and Virender Sehwag have often entertained their fans and followers in the form of hilarious tweets. Both the veterans are known for their creativity and there is no doubt about it.
Meanwhile, New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham is also known for his good sense of humour. The Kiwi cricketer has time and again posted funny tweets and received good response from his fans and followers.
Be it cricket or non-cricket related stuff, Jimmy Neesham still finds a way to post it in a hilarious manner. There were several instances when Neesham has given replies to his fans on social media.
During the ‘AskMeAnything’ session on Instagram in 2019, one of his fans asked him about his favourite Indian cricketer. While Neesham was patiently answering questions, he came across this interesting question.

The all-rounder decided to reply in the best way possible. While everyone expected him to pick a certain Indian cricketer, say, Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma, Neesham had another option in mind.
The all-rounder literally stunned the cricket fraternity by picking Ish Sodhi. Surprised right? Yes, you read it right. Not kidding. Replying to the question, the all-rounder posted a picture alongside his teammate and spinner Ish Sodhi who is of Indian origin.

For the unversed, Ish Sodhi was born in Ludhiana, Punjab on October 31 1992 as Inderbir Singh Sodhi. Four years later, his family shifted to New Zealand and has lived there ever since.
All of Sodhi’s match appearances have come under New Zealand-based citizenship. He made his test debut in 2013 and made multiple ICC World Cup appearances.
