Katich on Jamieson
RCB had made two attractive buys in this years IPL auction which also attracted lots of eyeballs. Glenn Maxwell and Kyle Jamieson was bought at a collective money of around 30 crores. He brings skillsets, not many players have: Katich on Jamieson While Maxwell is expected to provide serious firepower to the team’s middle order, Kyle Jamieson is an interesting expensive buy given he has not played much limited overs cricket and no subcontinent experience.
However RCB batting coach Simon Katich is upbeat about Jamieson who has done very well in test cricket taking 36 wickets in just 6 tests at 13 average.
Katich is more attracted to the skillsets that Jamieson can bring though he does not have much T20 experience.
“Obviously, he does not have that IPL experience but we have backed him in and from that perspective, he brings that skill set that not a lot of players have. He is a giant of a man and gets bounce with the new ball. And he can also handle the bat. So, he is an exciting young talent and there is a role there potentially for him depending on what balance of team we play with,” Katich pointed out.
