ICC prediction: New Zealand chief selector wants Boult to qualify for ODI World Cup

New Zealand chief selector Gavin Larsen expects fast bowler Trent Boult to lead the country’s bowling attack at the ODI World Cup in India later this year.

Last year New Zealand His Cricket (NZC) agreed to release him from his central contract as they wanted Boult to be able to join his T20 league around the world. He currently plays for his MI Emirates in the UAE International League T20.

The 33-year-old has expressed his desire to play in the World Cup, but his participation in the tournament has yet to be confirmed.

However, Larsen told his SENZ Mornings:
“The door is very open,” he added, adding that Boult is in constant talks with head coach Gary Stead. “Gary and Trent speak regularly. We all know Balti’s pedigree, experience and he’s been a great match winner for us over the years.

A quick left arm with an extraordinary ability to swing the ball in both directions, he is one of the greatest bowling talents in all forms of the game.

“We want him there. We want him there. We fully understand his situation and will continue to work with him.” increase.

“We have the World Championships at the end of the year. If the stars are right, we expect certain Trent Vaults to start bowling for us.”

With the absence of vault and experienced Tim Southey, the relatively inexperienced New Zealand pace his attacker has suffered a streak in his recently finished White ball in India. They faded out 3-0 in the ODI series, leaving them to worry about the World Cup in the months ahead.

New Zealand has reached the finals back-to-back in 2015 and her 2019 but has yet to win.
