The anticipated back surgery that New Zealand cricketer Kyle Jamieson is still scheduled to have may prevent him from playing for his country in international competition for a further few months, endangering his cricket career.
Kyle Jamieson was scheduled to make his international comeback during the current home Test series against England, however, a sudden recurrence of an acute backache prompted the management to decide against allowing Jamieson to play in the first Test in order to prevent further aggravating his ailment. In June 2022, on New Zealand’s tour of England, the 28-year-deadly old’s stress fracture was discovered. He was prohibited from playing any cricket for a few months until it was decided that he might only be permitted to make a comeback in the first Test this time around against a visiting England team.
Jamieson complained of back pain, and scans revealed a recurrence of the stress fracture, leading doctors to believe that the 6 feet 8-inch tall pacemaker hadn’t fully recovered and required immediate surgery. “He’s seen a surgeon and he’s getting back surgery later in the week, so it’s been a challenging and difficult time for Kyle and a big loss for us,” said New Zealand head coach Gary Stead. The 51-year-old stated that Jamieson had been the key bowler for the Kiwis for many years and such a sudden exit from cricket will definitely hamper New Zealand’s choice of bowlers within the team.
From Jamieson’s perspective, the lanky pacer has continued to be sidelined, and now that he needs back surgery, he will once again be out for a few months, which will undoubtedly put his cricket career in serious jeopardy. During Jamieson’s operation, Gary Stead promised that the administration would always be informed of his progress. “We hope we will know more in three to four months and just what the prognosis is,” Stead concluded.
