India vs New Zealand, 1st test: Kyle Jamieson hopes New Zealand will get more swing on the morning of day two | Cricket News


New Zealand playmaker Kyle Jamieson said on Thursday his side will need to make the most of the second new ball when play resumes on morning two of the first test against India. Their first goal will be to break the flourishing partnership between Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja. By strains on day one, the two had made 113 points for the fifth wicket to take India to 254 for four, saving the hosts after a swing in the second session.

“Hopefully the new ball wobbles a bit in the morning and we can get them back. We need a good start in the morning,” Jamieson said after returning with an impressive 3 for 47 numbers.

With the wickets of Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill and Ajinkya Rahane, the great Jamieson left India stuttering at 145 for four in the second session. However, the duo of debutant Iyer and Jadeja gave India a boost, and point guard Kiwi had no qualms about admitting it.

“I think India is ahead. We have held up pretty well,” he said. On a variable rebounding surface, India did rather well to end the day at 258 for four after losing three wickets in the second session.

“There isn’t a lot going on. I found some swing early and it was a bit high and low.”

Appearing only in his third overseas test, Jamieson is aware that the challenge of playing Test cricket in India will be different from what he is at home. The 26-year-old was part of the New Zealand squad that reached the T20 World Cup final, but he did not get any playing time in the United Arab Emirates. He was also injured in England.

“It’s nice to be back. I probably think that not having playing time in IPL and World Cup gave me the opportunity to step back and work on some things. .. “

“I’ve barely played the past few months. Nice to be back at the park.” Jamieson, who made a record-breaking test start, with 49 wickets in just nine appearances (including the current game), is on his first tour of the country with the national team.

As the Kiwis began their WTC title defense, Jamieson entered the scene with five runs from five wickets and an incredible 14.17 five-day average.


“I’m not trying to change my game … very lucky to have guys like Tim (Southee) and Wags (Neil Wagner) with me … I think we’re pretty good, we’ve had our chat before the game on how to do things.

“Lucky to have a little bit of movement early on … a little bit of a kick back in the middle. We know the nature of the terrain (here), they tend to break.”
