Kyle Jamieson, who has been effective in both games, believes that the presence of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Glenn Maxwell reduces the pressure on him.

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers are undoubtedly the heart of Royal Challengers Bangalore, having scored a truckload of runs and forming partnerships together. Kohli’s captaincy and de Villiers’ keeping have been top-notch in the present edition. On the other hand, Glenn Maxwell, who has joined the franchise this year, has crafted two match-winning knocks to play an integral role in their victories.

The towering right-arm seamer underlined that having played all over the world and performed incredibly; he hopes to take in those learnings and apply them. The 26-year old credited their presence, which allows him to play his role effectively.

“Yeah, probably it does not add any extra pressure on me, if anything it takes it away because those guys (Virat, ABD, and Maxwell) are so good. Yes, you know that they have done roles all around the world for a number of years. It is about tapping into that knowledge and trying to take their learnings and apply it. Once I said earlier, the pressure is even less because of those guys and how good they are, it probably allows me to play my role,” Jamieson told in a virtual press conference.

Kyle Jamieson remarked that the pitches in India are a lot on the slower side, unlike in New Zealand, where decks are greener. The Auckland-born seamer highlighted that the first two matches has been a learning experience for him and he is trying to find the area in which to hit the zone.

Certainly different from back home. Pitches back home tend to be a little greener than here. The pitches have been on the slower side, it has been a good challenge, I guess I am just trying to find the area which allows me to hit the zone where I want to. It has been a learning experience in terms of my first two games,” he added.
