Bangalore, Aug 8: New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham's cricket bat was ruined by American custom officials, who drilled four holes into the equipment, looking for drugs.

Neesham, who was playing in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) for Guyana Amazon Warriors, tweeted the picture of his bat with four holes in it. He, however, did not mention at which airport he had to face the wrath of the custom officials.

"Imagine if your cricket gear went through America and they drilled holes in your bat to look for drugs...," Neesham wrote on his Twitter page.

The 23-year-old Kiwi has played 4 Tests, 11 ODIs and 9 T20Is. He was a part of the Delhi Daredevils in this year's Indian Premier League (IPL 7).

For CPL this season, he replaced his team-mate Corey Anderson, who was injured.
