New Zealand veteran seamer Trent Boult is avidly preparing to take on India in the upcoming two-match Test series at home. The left-arm speedster is returning from a long bout of injury that kept him out of the limited-overs fixtures against India.
He suffered a fractured right hand during the Australia tour in December 2019, requiring extensive rehabilitation work. The fit-again Boult is now eying the prized scalp of Indian skipper Virat Kohli as New Zealand are all set to lock horns with their rivals. Boult believes getting Kohli’s wicket is one of the most important targets for New Zealand.
“That’s personally why I play the game, to get guys like that (Kohli) out and test myself against them, so I can’t wait to get stuck in. But he’s an exceptional player. Everyone knows how great he is,” Boult said before the first Test against India.
