Jamieson was in bathroom to get away from the tension of last day NZ chase in the WTC final
New Zealand staged an emphatic 8 wicket win to win the 1st world test Championships. However, the run chase on the last day was not without its tension and was not as easy as it was made out to be by the final result. Jamieson was in bathroom to get away from the tension of last day NZ chase in the WTC final.
Two quick wickets by Ashwin reduced New Zealand to 44/2 at one stage and tight bowling by India meant Williamson and Taylor were having to bring out all their experience and concentration into the play for an intriguing chase.
Kyle Jamieson who set up the historic win for New Zealand with 7 wickets including getting Kohli in both innings, has revealed that he was unable to bear the tension of the chase and had gone into the bathroom to stay away from all the noise as he found it extremely nerve-racking.
Jamieson said that it was the most difficult period for him to watch a game as a lot of tension was in the air and Indian fans would make a noise at frequent intervals.

He added that New Zealand had the best possible pair at the crease as both Kane Williamson and the veteran Ross Taylor used all their experience and skills to gradually calm the nerves in the dressing room.
Both the seniors remained not out. Williamson scoring 52 and Taylor hitting the winning run to stay unbeaten on 47.
