Jamie How turned out to be surprisingly good in his batting performance. New Zealand has this asset but the team has been unable to leverage the skills of Jamie How as he has hardly appeared in the current cricket tournaments. With New Zealand launching new faces such as Boult, Neesham and Sodhi, Jamie How could balance the batting side of team in the test and One Day International cricket formats. In a series against England between 2007 and 2008, Jamie How scored an unbeaten 68 score to help New Zealand save the test match. This shows that Jamie could be of great help in situations where there is pressure and a need for performing sensibly. Jamie How hasn’t played any world cup so far but he definitely can get a chance in 2015 Cricket World Cup. The New Zealand cricket team management needs to reconsider this talent and make him part of cricket world cup squad in order to provide comprehensive performance in 2015 ICC World Cup. Jamie has a good grip in T20 format as well which makes him all the more likable for this format where he has scored 56 runs in 5 T20 matches. Let’s see if he makes his way to the team again or not.
