Early signs

Kyle Jamieson, being born and brought up in Auckland, represents the city in domestic cricket, even nowadays. But he was able to bring his name to the notice of experts when he was representing Canterbury. Even he failed to impress in his maiden first-class match for Canterbury against Wellington in 2014, being wicket-less in his 22 overs at the cost of 70 expensive runs. In his opening match of the ‘List A’ cricket against Wellington in the Ford Trophy Jamieson also had the same predicament as he had to become wicket-less from his 4 overs at the cost of 23 runs. Still, the 26-year-old pacer did not give up and he returned with an inspiring performance in the Super Smash competition in 2019 for Canterbury. He had picked up 6 wickets for only 7 runs in four overs which is a record. Only three bowlers are ahead of him in the list in the world of cricket. Jamieson became the highest wicket-taker in the Super Smash last year by capturing 22 wickets from 10 matches. In first-class cricket, Jamieson has participated in 32 matches and accumulated 112 wickets with an economy rate of 3.10 including his best figure of 11 wickets for 160 runs in a match.
