Significantly, in 2012, while playing for New Zealand, Jimmy Neesham, who made his international debut, played his last IPL match for Delhi Capitals (DC) in 2014. After that, Neesham was never bought by any franchise during the IPL auction, then he could not become a part of this league due to injury. Now Jimmy Neesham is ready to paint in the IPL color once again. Neesham said that I am returning to the IPL for a very long time.

Last time I was very young while playing for Delhi and at that time I did not have much understanding of this game. It was like a big challenge for me then. But this time I am returning with more understanding and game testing. I am very excited about the team of Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) because this time I am eager to play with veterans like Chris Gayle and Glenn Maxwell. I am very excited to return to IPL 13. Jimmy Neesham can show skill in cricket with ball and bat.

In such a situation, it is to be noted that on the figures of Neesham’s T20 International Cricket (T20I), he has played 18 T20I matches for the Kiwi team so far.
