RCB ‘not too worried’ about Kyle Jamieson despite his struggles against Australia


Mike Hesson has backed his IPL team’s million-dollar recruit after the quick proved expensive in the T20Is against Australia

Mike Hesson, the director of cricket operations at the Royal Challengers Bangalore, has backed the team’s INR 15 crore recruit Kyle Jamieson despite the fast-bowling allrounder having a forgettable T20I series against Australia.

In the first four T20Is of the series, Jamieson has conceded 175 runs in 15 overs – economy rate of 11.66 – for just one wicket. But Hesson, talking to Sky Sports NZ after the third match – said that Jamieson shouldn’t be judged on his recent outings.

“He’s struggled, probably for the first time in international cricket really, which I don’t think is a bad thing,” Hesson said in a conversation with Ian Smith. “He’s battled to find his lengths, which when you’re put under pressure, that can happen. And pressure not only from the opposition but also the weight of expectations. For Kyle, I don’t think it’s a bad thing.
