IPL has now become not a game about learning and understanding different cultures and traditions, but players have started to respect each other, even after they belong to different countries. Cricketers from different part of the world come together and maintain a team spirit to play on the Indian soil. The two months are the most entertaining months of the year. When players from different countries come and stay on the Indian mainland, they usually spend a good time here. Their Instagram accounts are proof of the same.
However, many times these players have to face trolling, some even have to deal with Indians hurling abuses at them. Indians believe that the foreign cricketers do not understand these abuses, however, that is not the case.
Recently, New Zealand cricketer Jimmy Neesham had to go through something similar. When someone told him to use the abusive hashtag #PKMKB, Jimmy had a clear No as the answer. Here’s the tweet:
An Indian fan abused him by tweeting something really bad to him. This is what the fan tweeted:
Jimmy had a funny reply for him. Jimmy wrote-
Still trying the Hindi insult thing are we? Good stuff
His reply made the user delete his tweet and tweet again. He said-
Bhai Dil p mat Lena ￼ ! I love you tbh (Bro, don’t take it to the hear, I love you to be honest)
Twitter loved Jimmy’s reply and here’s how they reacted-
Jimmy Neesham understands India and Hindi abuses more than Indians know. He has proved this before and he continues to do so. Last year when someone on Twitter used the same word for him and Jimmy told him that he knows the meaning.
He wrote, “Do you guys seriously think we play 2 months of IPL and don’t learn any of the language “
Well, this proves that Jimmy is really good with his words and one must never mess with cricketers!
