Stead praises Jamieson for skipping IPL

“I think it’s a very brave move for someone at Kyle’s age to make but he’s obviously had some experiences there and worked out what he needs as a cricketer,” said Stead.

“He wants to play obviously all formats for New Zealand if he can but test cricket being the pinnacle for him is really important for him.

“I congratulate him for looking after what he thinks he needs to do to play test cricket, first and foremost.”

World test champions New Zealand included Jamieson and Williamson in an extended squad released on Wednesday for the three-test tour of England starting at Lord’s on June 2.

The 6ft-8in Jamieson burst onto the international scene two years ago and quickly cemented himself in New Zealand’s strong pace attack.

He struggled to impose himself in the drawn home series against South Africa, however, finishing with six wickets at an average of 33.

“I think he’ll be the first to say he just didn’t feel quite right last year and maybe through a workload issue as well,” said Stead.

“I guess we’re not going to know until we’ve seen him. He’s had a bit of a break.

“He’s looking fit and strong at the moment. So I’m excited to see what he’ll bring.”
