Kyle Jamieson is one of New Zealand’s best cricketers, but the big fast bowler has had to spend all of his time on the bench in the ongoing T20 World Cup.

The 26-year-old was the talk of the town a few months ago, but he has fallen down the pecking order. After a disappointing Indian Premier League campaign with the Royal Challengers Bangalore where he barely played, a lot was expected of him on the international stage.

He was expected to spearhead the Kiwis’ bowling attack, but he is yet to play a game for them. Tim Southee, Adam Milne, James Neesham and Trent Boult are all ahead of him, which is a shame, as he is more than capable of delivering if he’s given a chance.

As Jamieson is spending most of his time away from the spotlight, fans are keen to learn about his personal life. Here’s what we know…

Kyle Jamieson: Parents

Jamieson was born on the 30th of December, 1994, in Auckland, New Zealand, to parents Michael and Sheryl Jamieson.

Kyle’s dad, Michael, was a cricketer back in the day too. He played for the Papatoetoe Cricket Club on the domestic circuit, but he couldn’t reach the top level. His son is fulfilling that dream for him now.

Not a lot is known about his mom, Sheryl, but we do know that Jamieson has a sister named Brittany. She is two years younger than him.

Kyle Jamieson: Girlfriend

Jamieson is reportedly in a relationship with Emma Hartland.

Emma is 25, one year younger than her boyfriend, and is an advocate. She completed her LLB degree a couple of years ago when she was 23. She is reportedly based in Auckland and works as a lawyer.

Emma is on Instagram but her account is set to private. However, her bio is visible and reads: “Fan of international law, foreign policy & travel.”

Kyle and Emma are open about their relationship and the former has uploaded multiple pictures with her on his Instagram.

How tall is the New Zealand star?

Jamieson is one of the tallest cricketers in the world. He is 6ft 8in tall (203 cm), which makes him the tallest player to represent New Zealand on the international stage. He is the joint-third tallest cricketer in the history of the game, only behind England’s Boyd Rankin and Pakistan’s Mohammad Irfan.

As a kid, Jamieson was apparently a shy guy who stayed away from people. Everyone used to stare at him because of his height, but a word of advice from his father all those years ago gave him the confidence he has today.

“His towering height was a reason of curiosity for his peers even when he was at school and he used to feel awkward as to why people would just stare at him.

“I simply told Kyle that if they are staring at you, one day you will certainly become famous,” said his dad, Michael, and his words have been proved right.
