Mr. Mayank Tater 10, Aug 2022

The Kiwi legend and current no.1 ODI bowler Trent Boult had asked the New Zealand cricket board to not include his name in the central contracts for the next season to which the NZC has agreed.

 

The left-arm quick had requested this to spend more time with his family and to make himself available for international T20 leagues. Following this, Trent Boult’s international career will be ‘significantly reduced’ but he will be available for Blackcaps on important occasions if the team needs his services.

 

Boult, 33 in his statement said, “This has been a really tough decision for me and I’d like to thank NZC for their support in getting to this point. He added, “Playing for my country was a childhood dream and I’m so proud of everything I’ve been able to achieve with the Black Caps over the past 12 years.  

 

“Ultimately this decision is about my wife Gert and our three young boys. Family has always been the biggest motivator for me and I feel comfortable with putting it first and preparing ourselves for life after cricket.”
