RCB’s Jamieson: The fast bowler from New Zealand hasn’t been able to control the excessive flow of runs in this T20I series.

During the fourth T20I of the ongoing Australia’s tour of New Zealand in Wellington, Australia captain Aaron Finch scored a second consecutive half-century to announce his return to form.

In what was pretty much a one-man show by the 34-year old player, he scored his 14th T20I half-century in a must-win match. Given how the others didn’t convert their individual starts, it was vital for Finch to bat through the innings to power Australia to a competitive total of 156/6 in 20 overs.

Australia losing wickets at regular intervals after Finch won the toss and chose to bat didn’t let the right-hand batsman to play his natural game. At the halfway mark, Finch had only scored 21 off 22 deliveries.

Having crossed the 50-run mark in the penultimate over, Finch took to the attack against New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson by hitting him for four sixes in the last over. It was due to his assault in the last over that Finch ended up scoring 79* (55) with the help of five fours and four sixes.

Seeming clueless against the seasoned campaigner, Jamieson conceded 49 runs in his four overs without picking a wicket. In what has been that kind of a series for the 26-year old player, he has picked a solitary wicket in four T20Is at an economy and strike rate of 11.60 and 90 respectively.

Been bought by Indian Premier League franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore for a whopping INR 15 crore in the IPL 2021 auction last month, Jamieson received a lot of criticism on social media platform Twitter.
