New Zealand fast bowler Kyle Jamieson is working on his second Test against India at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. In the opening day’s game, he could not pick up a wicket as a left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel did most of the work on a turnpike at the iconic venue.

Meanwhile, Jamieson faced a problem in the morning of the second day’s play regarding laundry. Manager Mike Sandle was seen helping him by trying to dry an equipment using the fan. The official Twitter handle of Black Caps shared the photo on the social media platform.

In the first Test at Green Park in Kanpur, Jamieson became the fastest bowler in the country to achieve the 50-wicket milestone in test cricket. The speedster took only nine tests to reach the performance. He achieved the feat after rattling Shubman Gill’s woodwork on the third day of the first test, thereby breaking Shane Bond’s achievement.

Then he conjured roses from Simon Doull, the former New Zealand fast bowler. While hoping the pacer would have a long test career, Doull said Jamieson has filled in the missing part of the Black Caps’ pace attack.

Simon Doull praises Kyle Jamieson

“Unbelievable for Kyle. He’s blown up on the spot. I guess when you start in such an incredible way, it’s hard to keep going that way, but he just has. He’s played test matches against some really good teams like England and India quite a few times, Pakistan, Caribbean.

“He just keeps doing the job. For me, it’s an incredible start to a career that, from a New Zealand point of view, will hopefully last a long time,” Doull said in a video of New Zealand Cricket (NZC) on Sunday.

“I think what he has done is that he has added a great element to what was already a very, very good New Zealand bowling attack. Maybe it was missing a little piece in the Southee-Boult-Wagner combination.

“I know Colin de Grandhomme did a fantastic job. But Kyle creates rejection, upsets batsmen, hits them on the gloves … (and) he has also swung to go with it,” he added.
