Earlier, Neesham began playing for Auckland in domestic cricket but then shifted to Otago and shone in the 50-over format for them in the 2011-2012 season. He made three 40-plus scores at a good strike rate and had a decent run with the ball too, picking up his career-best figures of 5-44 against Wellington.
Neesham performed fantastically in the 2013 Champions League for the Otago Volts, aiding them in many victories in the early stages of the tournament.
He has been a useful player for New Zealand in recent times churning out crucial performances when needed. His dedication to improve earned him his Test cap against India in the second Test at Wellington in February 2014. He hit his maiden century in the game scoring a fantastic 137, the highest score on debut by a number 8 batsman in Tests.
The Kiwi all-rounder was snapped up by Delhi in the 2014 Indian T20 League auctions and was later bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders in the following season.
Neesham was omitted from New Zealand's 15-man 2015 World Cup squad, an act that drew criticism from experts. But, the enthusiastic Neesham accepted the fact cheerfully and continued to amuse everyone with his witty presence on Twitter. When New Zealand traveled to India in late 2016, he did not have the greatest of outings but has managed to hold on to his spot in the limited overs squad since then.
World Cup 2019 - What to expect
Like many other players in the New Zealand's squad, James Neesham would also be playing his first ever ODI World Cup as he was unlucky to miss out in the previous edition. If Colin de Grandhomme fails to fire, Kiwis might probably include James Neesham in the playing XI. Interestingly, the Blackcaps had included both - Neesham and de Grandhomme in the playing XI against India and Bangladesh in their recent ODI series in New Zealand. However, in order to get the team balance right, they'll have to go with either one of them during the Round Robin stages of WC 19. The chances of both featuring in the same match are very less, so it's going to be a stiff competition between the two burly all-rounders. Neesham has shown decent consistency of late but de Grandhomme should be New Zealand's first choice. Simply put, the one who shows nerves of steel under pressure shall prevail.
