Here is why Kyle Jamieson is not a part of IPL mega auction 2022

Kyle Jamieson was the second most expensive player in IPL auction last year

The New Zealand fast bowler Kyle Jamieson was one of the most expensive players in the IPL auction last year, but he has not even registered for this year’s auction. Initially, when his name didn’t feature in the auction list, a lot of fans were wondering if he was not shortlisted by the BCCI, but Jamieson has revealed now, while talking to ESPNcricinfo, that he didn’t register for the auction at all.


According to Jamieson, the reason why he opted out of the auction is that he has already spent a lot of time in the bio bubbles and managed isolation recently and if he had to play in the IPL, he had to spend a lot more time in the bio bubble again.

Jamieson also insisted that during the last few months, he has felt that his game is not at the level he wants it to be at and he wants to work on his game and upskill himself in the period where New Zealand is not playing cricket, rather than going to the IPL.


Kyle Jamieson couldn’t justify his price tag in IPL last year

IPL contract of Kyle Jamieson last year had given him more than 25 times the money that he gets from NZC as an international New Zealand cricketer. Jamieson played all the games for RCB in the first leg of the IPL which was held in India and although he had a couple of decent performances to his name, he couldn’t justify his price tag.

Jamieson was not in New Zealand’s playing XI in any of the games of the recently held T20 World Cup as well, despite the fact that he could also bat a bit besides offering his services with the ball. It remains to be seen if Jamieson returns to the mini IPL auction next year or continues to keep himself away from IPL altogether.



I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
