Kyle Jamieson was set to make his comeback against England in the home Test series.
Kyle Jamieson of New Zealand may be ruled out of international cricket for several months due to an impending back surgery that may adversely impact his future in cricket.
Kyle Jamieson was set to make his international debut in the ongoing home Test series against England, but a sudden recurrence of a sharp pain in his back prompted management to decide and refrain from allowing Jamieson to play in the first Test, so as not to aggravate his injury any further.
The 28-year-old sustained the fatal stress fracture during New Zealand’s tour to England in June 2022. He was ruled out of cricket for several months before it was decided that he might only be allowed to play in the first Test against a visiting England this time.
However, Jamieson complained of back pain, and scans revealed a recurrence of the stress fracture, leading to the conclusion that the 6ft 8inch tall pacer had not recovered and required immediate surgery.
