New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham out of first Test against India

0

The 26-year-old did not bat in either innings and bowled just five overs in the Black Caps’ tour match against Mumbai in Delhi, which finished on Sunday, after he took a blow in the nets last Thursday. 

Neesham had not featured for his country since the Test series against Australia last November as he had been struggling with a back injury and will play no part in the first Test versus Virat Kohli’s side, which starts on Thursday.
