  • Trent Boult IND vs NZ 2023

    Trent Boult IND vs NZ: In a massive breaking news update, New Zealand’s premier pace bowler Trent Boult was not available for selection in the white-ball series against India on their home soil consisting of 3 ODIs and 3 T20I matches. The first ODI encounter between hosts India and New Zealand is scheduled to begin on 18 January, 2023 (Wednesday) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. New Zealand recently beat Pakistan 2-1 in their last ODI assignment earlier this month.

    IND vs NZ: Why is Trent Boult Not Playing Today’s India vs New Zealand 1st ODI? 

    Earlier during last year, New Zealand’s senior left-arm pacer Trent Boult surprised the cricketing world when he asked his national cricket board to release from the central contract list in order to spend time with his family and play in the T20 leagues across the globe. However, Boult was part of the national side during the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia, but was not considered for selection in the Pakistan and India tours. He will certainly be a huge miss for the visitors in this ODI series against India as he had the upper hand over their top-order batsmen in the past.

    Trent Boult has picked up as many as 187 wickets from 99 ODI matches for New Zealand at an impressive economy of less than 5 and an average of 23.98.
