Kiwi cricketer Jimmy Neesham was left without a bat when customs officials decided to drill his bat full of holes to check for drugs.

The New Zealand all-rounder was travelling through the US with his team the Guyana Amazon Warriors of the Caribbean Premier League.

Neesham took to Twitter to express his thoughts: "Imagine if your cricket gear went through America and they drilled holes in your bat to look for drugs..." he said.

The 23-year-old has played four Tests and 11 ODIs for New Zealand.

He had earlier scored nine runs for the Warriors in that bats final innings.
