Kiwis’ tallest cricketer equals world record in Test debut innings
New Zealand’s tallest cricketer Kyle Jamieson is clearly having a good day at the office. He had earlier impressed everyone on his ODI debut for New Zealand against India where he scored 25 runs with the bat while also taking two wickets in the match.
He was named the man of the match for his all-round performance. In the third and final ODI, he picked up one wicket to his name. The lanky cricketer also made his Test debut against India where he made an instant impact on the field as he equalled the world record for most sixes hit in debut Test innings.
Kyle Jamieson equalled former Australia skipper Michael Clarke’s world record for hitting the most number of sixes in his first-ever Test innings. The 25-year-old cricketer accomplished the feat by smashing four sixes during his candid knock of 44 off 45 on the back of one four and 4 towering sixes.
Michael Clarke also hit four sixes in his first-ever Test innings against India in Bengaluru in 2004.
Not only did Kyle Jamieson added flesh to the scorecard by adding runs but also ripped through the defence of Indian batting line-up where he picked as many as four wickets to his name. Having bowled sixteen overs, he bowled three good maiden overs, giving away 39 runs and went on to register his career-best bowling figures of 4/39.
