Kyle Jamieson leads his team off at Eden Park today.

"I'm not a stats man"

Canterbury Kings bowler Kyle Jamieson took the best ever NZ domestic T20 figures by some distance in the Burger King Super Smash today, but he's taking it in his stride.

"It's a special day for myself but also a special day for us as a team, getting a win on the first day of the year is a pretty cool way to start," said Jamieson.

Jamieson ripped through the Auckland Aces' top order in front of over 2000 people at Eden Park today, removing the dangerous pair of Sean Solia and James Vince in the third over, and Glenn Phillips in the fifth, before coming back to take Roneel Hira, Mitchell McClenaghan and Ben Lister's wickets in his second spell.

"I don't think I did anything differently. Just the same thing we talk about putting the processes in place in the days leading up to the game. It was a matter of doing that and it just seemed to work out for me today.

"I'm not a big stats man but that's obviously a pretty cool thing, and I'll be able to look back on it in the days and weeks to come," said Jamieson.
