Kyle Jamieson, a New Zealand pacer, could miss a year of cricket after being diagnosed with another stress fracture in his back.

Surgery is not required this time, but he will be out of activity for an extended period of time. Speaking about it, the pacer noted that the last few days have been tremendously hectic.

“The last few days have been some of my most difficult, but I am really grateful for the help I’ve had from my spouse, family, teammates, support staff, and medical professionals. I understand that injuries are a part of life as a cricketer, and at my age, I’m hoping to have many more playing days ahead of me,” Jamieson said in a statement.

“I have a plan for how to deal with it. I’m aware of some of the challenges I’ll face, which will most likely be mental and emotional in nature; the physical aspect will be easier. You simply rest and build back up. It’s almost autopilot in a way,” he quote as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

This is tough news to get: Gary Stead

New Zealand head coach Gary Stead stated that the team management will support Jamieson during his recuperation. He noted that the cricketer has worked hard in international cricket, and the injury news is difficult to stomach.

“We’ve all seen how hard Kyle has worked to return to international cricket, so to hear such bad news is difficult. On the plus side, we know how determined he is to continue playing cricket for New Zealand, and we will be completely behind him on his rehabilitation journey. “His resolve is unwavering,” Stead added.
