After taking three wickets on Day One of the first Test against India, debutant Kiwi fast bowler Kyle Jamieson said that the feeling of making his Test debut had not sunk in yet.

The hosts restricted the visitors to 122/5 on the first day of the match before the last session of play was called off due to rain. Jamieson dismissed Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujarai and Hanuma Vihari.

“The feeling has not sunk in yet. I am feeling very pleased with my performance on day one. This wicket does assess bowlers, it was all about putting the ball in the right areas. I tried to keep things pretty simple, I was trying to make the Indian batters play the ball,” Jamieson told reporters after the close of play on day one.

“I think, the wicket holds the pace and bounce for a couple of days. It will help us tomorrow as well. Look, Virat has scored runs all around the world, the wicket assisted us, he is so strong on the stump line, I managed to get his edge and it was good,” he added.


As much for his bowling, the speedster is known for his height too. He is the tallest cricketer in New Zealand, and looking at that, the pacer said that he uses short balls as a major weapon.

“I think my short balls are a major weapon, as I bowl them with great height. Test cricket has always been the pinnacle for me, getting the cap was special. As most Kiwi kids, I grew up watching Glenn Mcgrath. As with any cricketer, you watch the best players going around. I have always admired him,” Jamieson said.

When play resumes on Day 2, Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant will be at the crease to continue the proceedings. Pant scored 10 runs on Day 1.
