Trent Boult comes across as one of the finest bowling talents produced by New Zealand. Ever since his debut, the proficient paceman has refused to look back as he performed consistently to swell his fame.
Even in the recently concluded Test series against Sri Lanka, Boult delivered a strong show which saw him claiming 8 wickets to help New Zealand draw the two-game Test series.
Broadening the discussion to include the ongoing year, the 30-year old cricketer has been found registering elite bowling shows.
In 4 red-ball contests of 2019, Boult managed 21 scalps, averaging only 21.23 per wicket. Only four bowlers are ahead of him with three of them playing more Test matches than Boult.
All this also helped him to break into the top five bowlers of Test bowling rankings as Boult is currently occupying the fifth position having 793 rating points in his bag.
With New Zealand set to play many games in the two-year cycle of the running edition of the ICC World Test Championship, the Rotorua born holds a pivotal position if Kiwis are to win the red-ball competition.
