United States custom officials drilled holes into New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham's bat during an apparent drugs search.


Neesham had been travelling in America with Caribbean Premier League side Guyana Amazon Warriors when his bat was inspected on Thursday. The ruined was returned to Neesham, who posted its picture on Twitter, after inspection.

Neesham said that imagine if ones gear went through America and they drilled holes in their bat to look for drugs, The BBC reported.

There is no suggestion that Neesham, who has played four Tests and 11 ODIs, was under any suspicion by the customs officials.

Although the bat is unlikely to used in the game again, it might yet have a future as a museum piece as responding to Neesham's tweet, the New Zealand Cricket Museum said that if that bat's now as useless as it appears, does the all-rounder fancy donating it their way, and added that it would be an interesting story to tell their punters.
