- Kyle Jamieson bagged 3 wickets for 47 runs from 15.2 overs on the first day
New Zealand all-rounder Kyle Jamieson was pleased with his performance after bagging 3 wickets on Day 1 of the first Test against India on Thursday. The 26-year-old finished with impressive figures of 3 for 47 from his 15.2 overs after the hosts won the toss and opted to bat first at the Green Park Stadium.
Jamieson struck early in the first session with the wicket of opener Mayank Agarwal after which he got rid of half-centurion Shubman Gill and captain Ajinkya Rahane in the second session to dent India.
“Not a huge amount going on. Found some swing early and it was up and down a little bit.
“Hardly played the last couple of months. It was nice to get back onto the park. Hopefully the new ball swings a little bit in the morning and we can get them. India fraction ahead I think. We hung around pretty well. Need a good start in the morning,” Jamieson said after the day’s play.
