Life/History of Kyle Jamieson
He was born on 30 December 1994 in Auckland New Zealand. He is the son of Michael Jamieson and Sheryl Jamieson. His father is a former cricketer who had played for Papatoetoe Club in Domestic cricket.
He has a two year younger sister named Brittany Jamieson. He did his schooling at Auckland Grammer School. Later, he attended Lincoln University through a scholarship and finished his graduation with a Bachelor of Commerce in the year 2019.
A right-arm fast-medium bowler and useful lower-order batsman, Jamieson is six feet eight inches tall, the tallest person ever to play international cricket for New Zealand. He started out as a batting all-rounder, but in 2012, he was slowly converted to become a bowler under the tutelage of bowling coach, Dayle Hadlee, brother of Richard Hadlee.
He made his Twenty20 debut for Canterbury on 4 December 2016 in the 2016–17 Super Smash. In June 2018, he was awarded a contract with Canterbury for the 2018–19 season. He had started his cricket career as an all-rounder nut he eventually ended up playing as the main bowler of his team.
He was part of New Zealand’s squad for the 2014 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup. On his very first match of the World Cup, he picked four wickets and scored 29* runs against Sri-lanka. However, it didn’t help his team to win the match.
On April 2, 2014, he started his List-A career for Canterbury for playing against Wellington in Ford Trophy. He didn’t get a chance to bat in that match, also he failed to get a wicket that day.
The same year, on October 25, he made his first-class debut against the same team in the Plunket Sheild. Later in 2016, he made his t-20 debut against Central Districts. Like his previous two debuts for Canterbury, he failed to get any wickets here too!
Later in 2018, the 2.03m tall cricketer moved to Auckland from Canterbury. According to him, he wasn’t feeling comfortable there because of the negativity around him which ultimately affected his nature and game on the field.
On 1 January 2019, in the match between Auckland Aces and Canterbury Kings in the 2018–19 Super Smash, Jamieson took the best figures by a bowler in a T20 match in New Zealand, and the third-best figures ever, when he took six wickets for seven runs from his four overs.
He was the leading wicket-taker in the 2018–19 Super Smash, with 22 dismissals in ten matches. In December 2019, he was listed in New Zealand’s test squad for their series against Australia but didn’t get a chance to play.

He made his ODI debut for New Zealand against India, on 8 February 2020, he was named as the player of the match. Jamieson made his Test debut for New Zealand, against India, on 21 February 2020. In the next match, Jamieson took his first five-wicket haul in Test cricket.
In October 2020, in the second round of matches in the 2020–21 Plunket Shield season, Jamieson took a hat-trick against Central Districts. In November 2020, Jamieson was named in New Zealand’s Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the series against the West Indies.
