WIth this being the inaugural seaosn of the SA20 league, Neesham said that the competition feels a litle like the Indian Prmeier League.“Yeah it's been great. It's a fantastic tournament obviously, the vibe has been amazing because the whole thing, some pretty incredible crowds and some pretty incredible atmospheres. So, it's been really enjoyable so far. We're only about halfway through so hopefully it keeps delivering over the next couple of weeks,” he said in an interaction with SA20.
“It almost feels like the IPL a little bit. The four overseas players and every team are obviously really high quality and I've been really impressed by the quality of the local South African players as well,” he added.
Neesham also explained how the Pretoria Capitals deal with the pressure of games and how they cope with each result, he said“Just about being as level headed as we can I think you know, we know what the quality of teams in this tournament you're not going to go out and blow teams off the park and win every game. So, we weren't really too disappointed with the performance yesterday. It's like a couple of really good innings from a couple of really high-quality players and Jos Buttler and David Miller and you know that happens every now and then and installments but the quality of players are higher, so we haven't changed whole lot going into this game. Just go again and be a little bit better than we were yesterday.”
