Kiwi fast bowler Trent Boult lost in the old days
The wounds of Indian cricket lovers will be fresh
New Zealand won the first final of WTC

new Delhi. New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult believes that winning the World Test Championship (WTC) against India is one of the biggest achievements for any New Zealand player. Bolt also believes that this spectacular achievement is unlikely to be repeated. New Zealand won the maiden World Test Championship in 2021 with an eight-wicket win over a formidable India team, the team’s maiden ICC title. Bolt feels it will ‘never happen again’ for a country with a population of over five million to reach the WTC final and then beat India, which has so many talented players. “For us to get to that stage as a Test playing nation when we are probably only playing eight Tests a year,” said Boult, who is playing in the Big Bash League.

“To get positive results for two years to reach the final and then beat India of 1.4 billion people, that will never happen again,” he said. That when you look at the sheer size of it (India’s) it is one of the proudest achievements of any New Zealand player. One of the best bowling talents across formats. Last year, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) agreed to release Boult from his central contract as he wanted to make himself available for T20 leagues around the world.

He said, “I am proud of everything I have achieved on the Test field but I have three young children and I am at the end of my career.” Bolt, however, hopes that his recent decision will reflect this. His chances of playing in the 2023 ODI World Cup in India at the end of the year will not be affected. Bolt said, “I want to present the challenge once again and I hope to be able to do so.”

The 33-year-old fast bowler feels that it is fine for cricketers to play as freelance cricketers later in their career but the decision of young cricketers to play T20 leagues instead of international cricket is a matter of concern for New Zealand. He said, “It can be same for people at a certain stage of career. I think if players who have played international cricket for one year prefer to do so in international cricket, then it can be a matter of concern.

Bolt said, “There are not many cricketers in New Zealand. There are not many people.” Despite the lack of resources, the New Zealand team is one of the stronger teams in the limited and Test format. Apart from winning the WTC title, they were the runners-up in the 2015 and 2019 ODI World Cups and the 2021 T20 World Cup.
