He can bowl with great swing and accuracy. He is a fantastic fielder. He may have a very unique batting style but it is effective. In the chapter of New Zealand’s resurgence on the world stage, the name Trent Boult will figure very prominently. The signs were there when he was in great form in the 2008 ICC Under-19 World Cup. Along with his future new-ball partner Tim Southee, they put on a tremendous show.

In his first outing in Test cricket, Boult played a major role in New Zealand breaking a near three-decade jinx in Australia by helping them to a Test win along with Doug Bracewell. From 2013 to 2021, Trent Boult has played a major part in New Zealand becoming the best Test team in the world. His partnership with Southee has accounted for 46 percent of all New Zealand wickets since that period. Add Neil Wagner and Kyle Jamieson into the mix as well as Southee, Boult makes the New Zealand bowling potent to a different degree altogether.

When it comes to World Cups, he has a very special place in New Zealand cricket. He was the joint highest wicket-taker in 2015 with Mitchell Starc. In 2019, he was once again in the top bowlers’ list but one thing remained constant. In 2015, his spell of 5/27 and the last-wicket stand with Kane Williamson gave New Zealand a thrilling win in Auckland. In 2019 at Lord’s, Boult took a hat-trick against the Australians. He had bowled the Super Over in the final at Lord’s and had it not been for a matter of inches, Boult would have won the game for New Zealand.

His catching is simply spectacular. For a fast bowler to be such a decorated fielder is rare. Boult’s catches off Denesh Ramdin, Ajinkya Rahane, Kieron Pollard have all gone viral on social media. His presence in the New Zealand team catalyses them to perform better each time they come out. Boult is one of the select few to get to 300 wickets in Tests and when his time is done, he will be one of the greatest players that New Zealand has ever produced.

Trent Boult International Debut

Trent Boult made his Test debut against Australia in Hobart in 2011. His ODI debut took place in 2012 against the West Indies in St Kitts. His T20I debut came in 2013 against England in Auckland.

Trent Boult International Cricket

In his very first Test match, Boult showed his class and troubled Australia in Hobart to end with four wickets. He also shared a crucial last-wicket stand with Chris Martin to give New Zealand their first win in Australia in nearly 26 years. He would hurt Australia often. In the 2015 ICC World Cup, his spell of 5/24 decimated the Aussies in Auckland. In 2019, he took a hat-trick.

The 2019 ICC World Cup was a bittersweet moment in Boult’s career. He dismissed Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja in the semifinal to prolong India’s pain against the Kiwis. In the final, he bowled the final over and the Super Over but he could not get New Zealand over the line. In the Test match arena, Boult has been sensational with Tim Southee. The duo has accounted for 46 percent of all of New Zealand’s Test wickets this summer along with Wagner and Jamieson. The quartet was the key factor in New Zealand’s ICC World Test Championship trophy against India. In the Test and ODI arena, Boult is a potent bowler who can trouble batsmen with swing, pace, and variations in length. It is the consistency of Boult to deliver at all times that makes him sublime.
