Trent Boult

Trent Boult asked to spend more time with his family and be available for T20 competitions, and New Zealand Cricket agreed to release him from his core contract.
Now, it’s likely that his international career will be “seriously reduced.” Prior to Wednesday’s announcement, Boult, 33, had multiple conversations with NZC.
Given the abundance of T20 leagues that are forming over the time period of their summer domestic season, the decision could have significant consequences for New Zealand.

Sir Richard Hadlee says that Trent Boult, a quick left-arm bowler, is one-half of the best new-ball pair in New Zealand history. He is a serious threat to batsmen all over the world because he can move the ball in both directions even when the conditions are not good.

Boult was born in the Bay of Plenty area of the North Island of New Zealand. His brother Jono describes him as a “normal Kiwi young guy” who likes golf, fishing, and surfing.
But he was meant to be a cricket player.
He lived in the same neighbourhood as future New Zealand team members Kane Williamson and Doug Bracewell, and his family helped keep him grounded and on track.
Even when he was young, there were signs that he was good.
He was the fastest high school bowler in the country when he was 17 years old.
He played for New Zealand at the Under-19 World Cup a year later.

The change to senior cricket wasn’t quite smooth, though.
In 2009, Boult got a stress fracture in his back. This kept him from playing cricket for two years and taught him to focus on getting stronger and in better shape.
People thought that he might have hurt himself when he tried to change his bowling action.
So, with the help of Shane Bond, one of Boult’s heroes, he went back to the moves he used as a child, and the results were more than promising.
By 2015, he could go for long stretches without dropping below 140kph.
He became one of New Zealand’s most important players in all formats and was a big part of the team’s run to the 2015 World Cup final.

At first, it was hard for Boult to get on the limited-overs teams because people thought he didn’t move the white ball as much as the red one.
But his performance in Test cricket was too good to ignore. He got to 100 wickets quickly and was New Zealand’s top wicket-taker in 2013, just two years after making his debut.
Brendon McCullum puts a lot of value on attacking cricket in the shorter versions as well, and Boult has shown that he prefers to get batsmen out instead of keeping them quiet, so it was a good match.
In the 2015 World Cup, he proved it by taking 22 wickets in nine games, including 5 for 27 in an epic win over Australia.
In the IPL, he made about $600,000, which showed how good he was at T20 cricket.
Northern Districts coach John Pamment says that Boult’s strength is that “he has a lovely wrist position, and the fact that his wrist goes right behind the ball gives him control.”
Tim Southee is a friend of Boult’s and a good person to talk to.
When they are singing well together, they are interesting to watch, and their songs are also very good.
In 2014, the two took 67 of New Zealand’s 143 wickets. This helped the team have its best Test year ever, with five wins out of nine matches.

Trent Boult IPL career

Trent Boult was picked up by Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2015 after impressing at the 2015 CWC.
The SRH team already had great bowlers like Dale Steyn, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Karn Sharma, and Praveen Kumar, so Boult only got to play 7 games. In those 7 games, he did pretty well, taking 9 wickets.
He didn’t have any chances to get better the next year, so SRH let him go.

Trent Boult was acquired by the Delhi Capitals (formerly known as the Delhi Daredevils) in 2017, and his finest IPL campaign to date came in 2018.

In 14 games in 2018, the left-handed bowler claimed 18 wickets.

However, the Kiwi was once more fired after a forgettable IPL season in 2019, during which he only played five games.

Mumbai Indians then paid Rs 3.2 crore to Delhi Capitals to acquire the Kiwi left-arm bowler in 2019.
He is now playing alongside Mitchell McClenaghan, another New Zealand pacer.

International Career Trent Boult

ODI Trent Boult

Boult, who was only 19 years old, was chosen for the New Zealand team on January 21 for the one-day series against Australia.
Boult was only able to participate in the warm-up match against the Prime Minister’s XI, and he bowled seven overs without picking up a wicket.
Boult was the New Zealand team’s fastest bowler throughout the trip, clocking in at a top speed of 143.3 km/h.

He returned to the ODI team for the home series against South Africa in October 2014, although he was absent from the action against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates.
The 2015 World Cup roster was chosen by the selectors because of his quick, both-way ball-swinging abilities.

Boult initially struggled to make the limited-overs teams because it was thought that he didn’t move the white ball as much as he did the red one.
However, his performance in Test cricket was too enticing to ignore: only two years after making his debut, in 2013, he was New Zealand’s leading wicket-taker. He sped past 100 wickets in his 29th outing.
It was a good fit since Brendon McCullum valued attacking cricket in shorter formats and because Boult had established himself as a bowler who wanted to remove batters from the game rather than keep them quiet.
Confirmation came at the 2015 World Cup, as he finished tied for the tournament’s top wicket-taker with 22 victims in nine games, including 5 for 27 in a thrilling win over Australia.

Boult, who shares the record for most five-wicket hauls by a New Zealand bowler with Richard Hadlee, collected his fifth one during the fourth One Day International of India’s 2018–19 tour of New Zealand.
His squad was able to defeat India with his 5-for-21 performance, posting their lowest ODI total since 2010.
Boult was chosen player of the match as New Zealand went on to score one of their largest victories.

Trent Boult was essential to New Zealand’s success at the CWC 2019 and to advancing them to the championship game.
In the 10 games he played, he took 17 wickets.
Boult is best known for the catch he made in the final at Lord’s on the cow-corner boundary, where he gave Ben Stokes a chance to survive in the final moments of the game by steppingpen on the skirting after collecting the catch.
The Kiwis’ World Cup dream was once again crushed in front of them, and Stokes made them pay.

Test Trent Boult

Boult made his Test debut against Australia in the second Test in Hobart during the 2011–12 season.
By a score of 7 runs, New Zealand prevailed in the game, earning their first test victory in Australia since 1985 and their first test win over Australia since 1993.

His career has gotten off to a respectable start, with victories over opponents from England, the West Indies, India, and Sri Lanka.

The second Test match at Basin Reserve against the West Indies was where he attained his greatest success, earning his first 10-wicket haul.

The left-handed paced continued to put on strong performances during the 2011 and 2012 seasons, and he developed into a perfect counterbalance to another promising pacer, Tim Southee.
He continued this strong play into 2013, taking 19 wickets in 5 tests against England, including 6/68 at Eden Park in March, his second-best test match innings bowling numbers.

Boult became the first New Zealander to do so when he grabbed five wickets in the first day-night test in history, bringing him into second place overall after Josh Hazlewood.

In Auckland’s First Test against England, Boult had his best-ever Test cricket performance, scoring 6/32.

After limiting England to 58 runs in their first inning, New Zealand went on to defeat England by an innings and 49 runs.

Boult was named the contest’s MVP.

T20 Trent Boult

On February 9, 2013, Trent Boult faced England in his first T20I match.
He completed his four overs allotment and dismissed Jonny Bairstow and Stuart Broad.
Boult didn’t play in the entire 2016 World T20 because of New Zealand’s horses for courses strategy, which won them a lot of praise.
Despite his success in the ODI and Test formats, Boult has only participated in 22 T20Is in his career, thus he hasn’t been a regular fixture in the T20 setup.
