New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham had holes drilled into his bat by United States customs officials during an apparent drugs search.

Neesham’s bat showed at least four holes following its brush with customs officials

Neesham, 23, was travelling in America with Caribbean Premier League side Guyana Amazon Warriors when his bat was inspected on Thursday.

The ruined bat was returned to Neesham, who posted a picture of it on Twitter. 

“Imagine if your gear went through America and they drilled holes in your bat to look for drugs,” he said.

There is no suggestion Neesham, who has played four Tests and 11 one-day internationals, was under any suspicion by the customs officials.

While the bat is unlikely to be swung in anger again, it may yet have a future as a museum piece.
