Jimmy Neesham pays tribute to his childhood coach David Gordon

Former Auckland Grammar School teacher and Coach David James Gordon died during World Cup final, just moments after protege Jimmy Neesham belted a six into the stands during the Cricket World Cup final’s thrilling climax.

Gordon’s daughters Leonie Gordon and Kimberley Allan had earlier joked that their seriously ill dad would be sure to stick around long enough catch the big game.

And sure enough, it was not until New Zealand began batting in the Super Over in a bid to end the deadlock with England that Gordon’s breathing began to change.

“Then Jimmy hit that big six in the Super Over and Dad just stopped breathing,” Leonie Gordon said.
