Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, the Indian team has won the series by winning the first three matches of the five-match T20 series. Two more matches of this series are to be played now and after that one match series of three matches will be played in Hamilton from February 5. Hosts New Zealand have lost the T20 series, but they probably do not want to leave any shortage in the ODI series and for this, they included 6-foot-8-inch fast bowler Kyle Jamieson, who performed brilliantly in his team. Jamieson has not played a single international one-day match so far. It is expected that he will make his debut in the ODI series against India. He is currently New Zealand's longest cricketer.
Along with List A matches, Auckland has been rewarded for consistently performing in T20 matches and Kyle Jamieson has been included for the first time in the New Zealand ODI squad. Jamieson, a right-handed fast bowler, is six feet eight inches tall and is considered a master of swing and seam along with his fast bowling. Jamieson also bowled well against India A in three matches and took six wickets. This 25-year-old player has been included in the Kiwi team because of the fact that the regular fast bowlers of this team are not proving to be more effective against India, in such a situation, he can become a big problem for the batsmen of Team India on their own soil.
Auckland-born Jamieson's home track record has been quite satisfying. He has taken a total of 72 wickets in 25 First Class matches so far. His best record in an innings has been eight wickets for 74 runs while 11 wickets for 160 runs in a match. Talking of List A matches, he has taken 33 wickets in 26 matches so far and four wickets for 49 runs has been his best performance. At the same time, he has taken 46 wickets in 29 T20 matches. His best performance in this format is 6 wickets for 7 runs.
