Boult left the contract of the Kiwi board
After Stokes, Trent Boult was also troubled by the very busy cricket schedule; will continue to play domestic cricket
Fast bowler Trent Boult has terminated his contract with the Kiwi board. He will be seen playing very little cricket now. Bolt has taken this decision to give time to his family and reduce the fatigue of continuous cricket. However, the 33-year-old fast bowler will continue to play domestic cricket.
He is no longer part of the New Zealand team. Now when they are available, then only they can be selected for the team. Boult is currently on the West Indies tour for the limited-overs series. In this format too, he is making a comeback after a long time.
The bowler, who has taken 548 wickets in international cricket, has suddenly ended the central contract and has once again brought the administrators of cricket operations under the scanner. His decision has once again heated up the issue of a very busy cricket schedule.
Recall that 21 days ago, English all-rounder Ben Stokes retired from ODI cricket saying that it is very difficult for him to play in all three formats of cricket. His body is also responding now.
Bolt said, 'It is a matter of pride for me to play cricket for the country. It was a dream that came true. I have been playing continuously for the last 12 years. Now I want to give time to my family. I have taken this decision for my wife and 3 kids. My family is my first priority and they need me now.
He said, 'I have taken a conscious decision to exclude myself from the central contract. My absence will definitely affect the team. However, a fast bowler's career is also not very long. In such a situation, it is the right time that me now complete my plans for my different steps.
Trent Bold is the number-1 one bowler in ODI cricket. Trent Boult became number 1 in the recently released ICC ODI rankings. He had left behind Jasprit Bumrah.
