In a humorous tweet, Neesham stated, "Kids, don’t take up sport. Take up baking or something. Die at 60 really fat and happy."

The match which went into the Super Over, saw Neesham come in with Martin Guptill after Eoin Morgan's team registered 15 runs in their Super Over. Neesham slammed 13 runs off five balls, as the Black Caps also reached 15-runs, but lost due to their opponents having smashed more boundaries.
