After yesterday night’s triumph versus Rajasthan Royals in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 encounter, Mumbai Indians have a lot to celebrate. Sanju Samson’s squad was beaten by Rohit Sharma’s team, who chased down the low score of 90 runs in just 8.2 overs. MI just released a video from their workout off the field on Instagram. In the video, MI’s New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham can be seen tossing a basketball into the net from a distance of 30 yards. The basketball talents of the Kiwi International have astounded both his colleagues and netizens. MI wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan can also be seen, in the video, yelling in joy and then hugging Neesham. “These are the kinds of things you tell your pals, and they’ll say things like, ‘Kya fekta hain bey…’ But we have proof on video,” the caption said.

Fans too praised the amazing throw with one of them even comparing Neesham to Olympic gold medallist Neeraj Chopra. “Real I’d se aao Neeraj Chopra (Log in from your read account, Neeraj Chopra”,” the user added.

“Jimmy throwsham,” wrote digital artist Viraj Ghelani in a pun. While several others advised him an alternate profession in basketball.

A commenter claimed the toss reminded him of Chris Hemsworth’s character Thor in the Avengers series.

People also remarked on Kishan’s reaction with one admirer comparing Ishan’s joy to that of an excited youngster.

Apart from the Thor-like throw, Neesham also had a spectacular game last night. Playing his debut encounter for the club in the UAE leg of the Indian Premier League, the New Zealand all-rounder grabbed three wickets for only 12 runs in his quota of four overs.

This helped MI limit the Royals to 90 runs, which was knocked down easily by the Rohit Sharma-led side with 70 balls to spare and eight wickets in hand.
