James Neesham is one of the top all-rounders in world cricket at the moment. The left-handed batter has made a name for himself with his big-hitting skills. He has also scalped wickets at regular intervals for his teams besides taking some magnificent catches in the field.

Apart from his all-round brilliance, Neesham is also famous for his social media activity. His witty replies on Twitter have earned him a massive fan following on the micro-blogging platform. Neesham recently shared his views on a new rule for IPL 2022.

Considering the recent suggestions from the MCC, the BCCI has updated the rules for the upcoming Indian Premier League season. One of the rules that the BCCI has changed is related to the batters.


Often, fans would have seen00 that the batters change strike when the ball is in the air, and when the catch is taken, the batters are considered to have crossed. The new batter goes to the non-striker’s end in that situation. But as per the new rule, the new batter will take the strike now.

“Upon a catch dismissal, irrespective of whether the batsmen have crossed or not the incoming batsman will take the strike, except if it’s the last ball of the over,” the BCCI informed the franchises.

Neesham, who will turn up for the Rajasthan Royals, in the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League, soon quoted a tweet of the link that stated the new rules. He felt there was no need for the new rule related to the change of strike.

“I don’t really understand the point of this. Has this rule ever been a problem?” wrote Neesham before adding that he did not like the new rule.
