It’s Personal Responsibility – Neesham On Performing In BPL Debut

New Zealand James Neesham said on Saturday that it’s more personal responsibility to be professional than anything else.

Neesham came up with a brilliant all-round performance to help table topper Rangpur Riders beat Chattogram Challengers by 53 runs in the Bangladesh Premier League, country’s lone franchise-based T20 tournament.

 “I think, first of all, it’s nothing new. In the last few years, cricket has evolved with more travel, going from place to place, and winning tournaments. So, it’s certainly something I’ve done in the past and not something we’re unfamiliar with. It’s just about drawing on your past experiences of playing in the conditions you turn up to, and potentially giving yourself five or 10 balls to get used to the wicket instead of trying to hit boundaries from the start,” Neesham told reporters when he was asked how they adapt to the conditions.

“As I mentioned before, the way our opening batters and top three or four got us momentum in the first 10 overs allowed myself and a lot of guys to come in and take the time to get going, which is obviously part of team cricket,” he said.

“It’s pretty typical anywhere around the world. You have your scouting meetings, get videos of the opposition bowlers and batters, and to be honest, it’s more personal responsibility to be professional, do your preparation, and know what’s coming. It’s not up to the coach, vice-coach, or captain to tell me how to prepare for a game,” he said.

“It’s about personal responsibility. We have all the technology at our fingertips these days to analyse teams, and while there are some players you’re familiar with and some you’re not, it’s about playing your own game, trusting yourself, and today that worked,” he said.
