IPL 2023: Jamieson out due to injury

Jamieson, who last played an international match in June 2022, was recently picked for the 2-match home Test series against England after recurrence of his back stress fracture. He is now slated to undergo a surgery and faces another extended period on the sidelines.

The lanky New Zealand all-rounder was roped in by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for Rs 15 crore – the second most expensive buy in IPL 2021. However, he failed to impress and scored just 65 runs at 16.25 and picked nine wickets at an economy rate of 9.60 in nine matches.

He opted out of the IPL 2022 mega auction to spend time at home after spending a considerable amount of time in a bubble due to Covid-19 pandemic.

“Firstly, after the last 12 months, it’s had its challenges with MIQs (managed isolation and quarantine) and bubbles and spending a fair amount of time in that sort of set-up,” Jamieson had told ESPNcricinfo.


”It was important for me when I look at the schedule coming up over the next 12 months to try and find six weeks or eight weeks where I can spend some time at home.

“The second thing for me was, reflecting over the last 12-24 months and understanding that I’m very young in my [international] career and only two years in, that I wanted to have time to work on my game.

“I didn’t really feel like I was where I wanted to be and if I want to compete for spots in the New Zealand sides moving forward across all three formats, I actually need to spend time working on my game and not just trying to play the whole time,” he had added.

The 28-year-old was acquired at his base price of Rs 1 crore in IPL 2023 auction.
