Kyle Jamieson opts out of India T20 series to focus on Tests

New Zealand all-rounder Kyle Jamieson has decided to skip the three T20 Internationals against India to focus on the upcoming Test rubber, the first series of the new World Test championship cycle. Jamieson will thus join his skipper Kane Williamson, who has also decided to miss the T20Is to prepare for the two-match Test series, starting on November 25.

“We decided through talking with Kane and Kyle that they won’t play in this T20 series,” coach Gary Stead was quoted as saying by stuff.Co.Nz. “They’re both going to get ready for the Test matches and I think you’ll find there will be other guys involved in the Test matches that won't play the entire series either.
