New Zealand cricketer Jimmy Neesham had a shock travelling through America when his bat was drilled full of holes by customs officials.

The 23-year-old, who was in transit between matches for his Caribbean Premier League team, the Guyana Amazon Warriors, tweeted a picture of his bat after its going-over.

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

The photo showed three holes drilled into the side of Neesham's bat.
