Kyle Jamieson could go on to become one of the most exciting options for IPL franchises in this year’s auction. The 26-year-old all-rounder has registered himself at a base price of INR 75 lakh, but that value could become manifold if teams get involved in a bid for him. Ahead of the auctions in Chennai on 18th February, Kyle Jamieson stressed that he hasn’t focused about it too much.

Despite making just four appearances in T20Is since his debut in November last year, Kyle has failed to leave a mark and has just three wickets. However, it is the longest format of the game where Kyle Jamieson has shone brilliantly. In just six matches, he has picked 36 wickets at an economy rate of 2.38 and strike rate of 13.3.

Jamieson revealed that even if he doesn’t get picked by IPL teams, he won’t be affected too much by it.

“To be fair, I haven’t paid too much attention to it and for me I’ve been focused on what I can control here and I think things will pan out the way they are going to tomorrow night – whether that means I get picked up and go great and if not there’s still a lot of cricket to be played across the winter. I try not to pay too much attention. Things like that tend to take care of themselves.”

Kyle Jamieson also revealed that playing for a team could prove to be a valuable experience as he could learn a lot from some of the best players in the world.

“That experience, if it comes, I’m not sure what’s going to happen, but it’s certainly a different experience and a lot of new learnings to come from. The probably most exciting thing is that when you get to play in these different environments, there’s a lot of learning and ways to upskill and try to add strings to your bow,” Kyle Jamieson concluded.
