Cricket could be more fun, if ball-tampering is allowed, says Jimmy Neesham

New Delhi: New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham might have created a controversy by that saying ball-tampering should be allowed in Test cricket.

When 26-year-old was asked in an interview at ESPNcricinfo, which law he would like to introduce in the game, he replied,"I would quite like to see what would happen if there were no rules on ball-tampering. If you could just do whatever you wanted to the ball. That would probably make Test cricket more interesting. It could make more tedious sessions more exciting with the ball reversing more."

Jimmy made his debut in Tests against India in Februray 2014. In the same match the left-hander made an unbeaten 137 not out, becoming the highest scorer at number 8th for any team in his debut.
