Trent Boult rates early wickets as key to success in World Cup

There’s no denying the fact that England is going to dish out fine batting tracks in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. While batting is going to be a crucial aspect, it is hard to ignore the role of bowling as many cricket pundits termed bowling as key to winning the World Cup.

This notion has recently been endorsed by the Kiwi paceman Trent Boult who believes that early wickets would be pivotal to stop any batting line-up from posting gigantic totals. Reflecting on the forthcoming mega-event scheduled to get underway from May 30 in England and Wales, the 29-year old added that bowlers will have to attack and look for wickets rather than target a defensive line.

The dangerous quick also highlighted the importance of pitching the ball up and letting it swing to decimate the batters. After recording a laudable campaign in last edition of the World Cup, the Rotorua born is confident about emulating his success in the 10-team tournament. Moreover, Boult is hopeful about New Zealand delivering a strong show and going one step ahead to win the tournament this time.
