All-rounder Jimmy Neesham’s childhood coach passed away after Jimmy hit a six in the super over. The match between New Zealand and England will be written down in history. The game was a tie and so was super over. England won by maximum boundaries.

The coach’s daughter said that the moment Neesam hit a boundary, on the second ball in the super over her father stopped breathing. Neesham hit a six on the second ball of the super over.

While talking to media, Gordon’s daughter said that he had a wicked sense of humor,

” One of the nurses came in for the final over, the super over, and she said his breathing is changing. You know, I think Jimmy Neesham had just hit that six and he took his last breath.
He has a quirky sense of humour, and he was a real character, and he would have loved the fact that he did that,

Jimmy posted a message on Twitter, it read.

“Dave Gordon, my High School teacher, coach, and friend. Your love of this game was infectious, especially for those of us lucky enough to play under you. How appropriate you held on until just after such a match. Hope you were proud. Thanks for everything. RIP”

Gordon, you sure trained them well.
