Michael Neser made his IPL debut in 2013. He was signed by Punjab Kings in 2013. Significantly, that season Neser was able to play only one match. He made his debut against Royal Challengers Bangalore. He was thrashed fiercely in that match. Neser had 64 runs in four overs in that match.

That turned out to be his first and last IPL match. After this he never got a chance to play in IPL. At the same time, Neser has also been a part of Australia’s famous Big Bash League. However, he is finding it a bit difficult to play in the WTC final against India as Australia may prefer Scott Boland as the third pacer.
