Wellington, Mar 17(ANI): New Zealand bowler Mark Gillespie has made an astonishing comeback in the Kiwi Test squad after almost three years, and he believes his strong self believe is the main reason behind this brilliant comeback.
Many others might have quit playing after medical experts advised him to stop playing cricket, but Gillespie never stopped, believing he'd play for New Zealand again.
"I was just in a lot of pain and couldn't bowl, and then, got to the point when I just thought 'stuff it, I'm just going to give it a crack'. I've bowled in pain my whole life, so why not just keep doing it," Stuff.co.nz quoted Gillespie, as saying.
"So after a while I just gave it heaps, pushed through the pain, and then my thigh fell apart, twice," he said.
"It was two years I was out and obviously over that time you see a lot of different doctors and the signs weren't that good," he added.
Gillespie debuted in South Africa in November 2007, taking 5-136. That career-best was finally wiped out yesterday at Hamilton's Seddon Park in the second Test match, which New Zealand lost to South Africa by nine wickets. (ANI)
