Jamieson is very excited about the tour
The 6’8 Paceman has already left a mark with his unbelievable consistency in line and length in Red Ball cricket. Kyle Jamieson debuted against the full-fledged Indian side and picked 4 & 5 wickets in the first innings of both test matches and helped NZ to clean sweep the visiting side.
Jamieson has had an ideal start to his career where he picked the two Indian greats in Kohli and Pujara in subsequent overs cheaply. Jamieson’s ability to skip the ball and pick extra bounce makes him quite a lethal bowler despite not usually clicking over 135.
Jamieson said he has had a 5-day England tour but generally implies it will be a new experience. The 26-year old said, “There is so much history around the England cricket and the conditions are pretty similar to the home side, we certainly will be looking to relish the opportunity.”
Jamieson’s IPL experience
The 6’8 man was acquitted by RCB for a remarkable price of 16 crores in the now-banned 14th edition of IPL. Kyle was part of a team led by Indian Captain Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers. When asked about the experience, he said it was a good opportunity in a different environment. He also said it was a right call to abandon the tournament midway.
Trent Boult’s inclusion for the first test is uncertain
Although the 31-year old will still be available for the World Test Championship final against India. An NZC statement said that Boult would be back with the squad possibly in time to be picked for the second Test against England but certainly in time for the ICC WTC final. NZ attack includes the likes of Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Neil Wagner and Kyle Jamieson and it will be a big challenge for the Indian side.
