forced to undergo surgery
Jameson suffered a back injury in the series against England in June last year. After this injury, he returned after almost six months and played three T20s, two List-A matches for Auckland. He was about to return to international cricket from the series against England in February this year but his back injury resurfaced and hence he could not make a comeback.

Kyle Jamieson with his Swing, seam, bounce & control was absolutely terrific as he picked up his fifth 5- wicket haul in just his 8th Test Match. India would have liked 60-70 more but have a quality bowling attack to make a match of it. Wishing the bowlers good luck. #WTCFinal21 pic.twitter.com/ZGsTgYKvqY
