Kyle Jamieson has been ruled out of the England series; Jacob Duffy and Scott Kuggeleijn have been called up in his place.


Due to a stress fracture in his lower back, the Kiwi pacer has been ruled out of the two-match Test series.

Kyle Jamieson’s promising international career has been disrupted yet again, as the tall pacer has been ruled out of the upcoming two-match Test series against England due to a suspected stress fracture. Jamieson’s teammate Matt Henry is also out of the Test series opener due to the birth of his first child.

Kyle Jamieson had a fast start to his international career in 2020, but injuries have slowed his progress on the biggest stage. The tall pacer was injured in the back during last year’s tour of England, and the latest setback is thought to be a recurrence of the same injury.

Following his injury in June 2022, the tall bowling all-rounder missed the majority of action, only to make a comeback in the Super Smash and Ford Trophy. He played in the New Zealand XI’s practise game against England in Hamilton, where he suffered a back stress fracture. Gary Stead, New Zealand’s head coach, expressed his disappointment following Jamieson’s latest injury.

“It’s heartbreaking for Kyle to have this happen after he’s worked so hard to get back on the field. We’ve certainly taken a cautious approach to managing his return since the injury in June, with regular monitoring by our medical staff, including scans.

“While Kyle isn’t in pain, the evidence suggests he has a stress fracture, so he’ll return to Christchurch today and have a CT scan on Friday before we decide on the next steps,” New Zealand coach Gary Stead said.
