Kyle Jamieson, the New Zealand all-rounder who starred with the bat and ball to hand his team an 8-wicket win in the World Test Championship (WTC) final in Southampton, has revealed the tense dressing room scenario during the final session of the match.
The 6-feet-8-inch tall cricketer said he was watching the match on a TV and the short delay in telecast from the real time action caused a lot of trouble for him.
“It was probably the toughest period of cricket I’ve been a part of, in terms of watching,” Jamieson told Country Sport Breakfast on Gold AM.
“We were sitting inside and actually watching on TV. There was a bit of a delay but it seemed like every ball the Indian crowd was up and about and I was like ‘jeez it’s a wicket’ or something like that, but it turned out it was just a block or a single.
