CHENNAI: Kyle Jamieson, bowler for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), said on Saturday that with the likes of AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell and Virat Kohli on his team, he is not being put under too much pressure and the boy has the freedom to express himself in every game.

Jamieson was picked up by RCB in the player auction for a whopping 15 rupees, and the big pacemaker is expected to take wickets and then finish the games with his huge hit. In the first two games of this season, Jamieson has two wickets and he’s scored 16 runs.

« Yeah, it probably doesn’t put any extra pressure on me, if at all, it takes it away because these guys (Virat, ABD and Maxwell) are so good. Yes, you know they have played roles all over the world for a while number of years. It’s about using that knowledge and trying to use and apply their insights. Like I said earlier , the pressure from these guys is even less and how good they are will probably allow me to play my part. « Jamieson said during a virtual press conference on Saturday.

About his experience in India so far, Jamieson said: » This is my first time in India, I love it so far. I survived the quarantine and then trained at the training camp. Now the games are under way. Sure I’ve had fun so far, very different from at home, but I have mine until now Loved the experience.

« Certainly different than at home. The pitches at home are usually a bit greener than here. The pitches were slower so it was a good challenge. I think I’m just trying to find the area to hit. « The zone I want to be in. It was a learning experience in terms of my first two games, » he added -Year-old also said his role is only to hit the field hard and try to move the ball both ways. He also revealed what he would like to learn from veteran activist AB de Villiers.

« My role was pretty simple. Try to hit the field hard and move the ball both ways. The role assigned to me is changing Not over 20 overs, « said Jamieson.

 » Probably not too much. I just want to tap into his brain, he’s such an experienced player and he has such a good record all over the world. People like him Having it on the team makes me very happy and hopefully.  » I will support myself and the rest of the group well, « he added.

RCB have won both games so far this season and the team will face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) here at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday .
