New Zealand’s fast-bowler, Trent Boult blew away the Indian top-order to script a thumping 6-wicket win for his team in their first warm-up game ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The swing bowler is looking to capitalize on the English bowling conditions in order to bag early scalps at the showpiece event.
Boult believes that Indian captain, Virat Kohli is one of the most difficult batsmen to get out and said that it is best to get him out in the early stage of his innings as it’s difficult to notice his mistakes.
"Yeah, you got to remain aggressive against Virat and look to get him out because the mistake he makes are very few and far between. Doesn't look to give his wicket away. It is important to start well and put pressure on him early and make sure he is under pressure and doesn't get off to an easy start," he said.
The left-arm pacer refused to rate the fine batsmen such as David Warner, Steven Smith and Joe Root among the others. However, he felt excited about challenging these batsmen past their limits in the big tournament.
