New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson is ready for a different challenge in India

Hoping to appear alone in his third test abroad, New Zealand pacemaker Kyle Jamieson is aware that the challenge of playing test cricket in India will be different than it is at home, despite his enviable record.

India and New Zealand will meet in a two-match test series with the first game starting here from Thursday.

Jamieson, who has broken test cricket records with 46 wickets in just eight appearances, is embarking on his first tour of the country with the national team.

“I haven’t played much cricket here. I had the first half of the IPL, which was good, but this will be different again, ”Jamieson told

“I have Wags (Neil Wagner) and Timmy (Tim Southee) here, so it will be good to brainstorm about them, to get their bowling experience here.

“It will certainly be a different challenge than we have at home, but I’m looking forward to it,” added the tall runner.
Jamieson played a crucial role in New Zealand winning the last three Tests against India, including the World Test Championship final against India in Southampton in June this year.

However, with Southee and Wagner on the team, Jamieson might not be part of the XI that plays in the opener.

As the Kiwis begin their WTC title defense, Jamieson enters the picture with five sets from five wickets and an incredible 14.17 average in the five-day format.

“It certainly feels a long time ago. There is no better way to start than the challenge of India in India. “

Despite the difference in conditions, Jamieson said he will remain at his strengths as he looks to adjust.

“First of all, I think that for me it is not about trying to change my game too much, to keep trying to maintain my strengths, but to try to adapt to what the conditions give.

“If I play and get the new ball, it’s trying to swing that and as conditions change and roles change throughout the game, I try to focus on that.”

The 26-year-old was part of the New Zealand team that reached the T20 World Cup final but did not get playing time in the United Arab Emirates.

“It was good to be a part and it gave me the opportunity to step back, with the volume of cricket that I had been playing, the opportunity to work on my game and go back to the gym with Chris (Donaldson, strength and conditioning coach ). “
