Trent Boult Biography


Arguably one of the best new-ball bowlers in the world right now, Trent Boult is a professional New Zealand cricketer.


He is a left-arm fast bowler who is famous for his ability to swing the ball and being a threat to the top order batsmen.


Boult was born on 22 July 1989 in Rotorua, Bay of Plenty and has been an asset to the New Zealand team since his debut.


Background


Boult showed the signs of his skills very early in life when he was 17-year old, he got named the fastest secondary school bowler in the country.


The next year, he was already representing the country in the Under-19 World Cup. However, he did not make a smooth transition to international cricket.


He suffered a stress fracture of the back that kept him out of cricket for two years.


It was because of changing his bowling action, which meant he had to go back to the bowling action that he used as a boy.


Debut


Boult made his Test debut against Australia on 9 December, 2013. He took a total of 4 wickets in the two innings.


Initially, it was believed that he could not swing the white as well as the red ball, but his performance in the longer format forced his debut in the ODI format as well.


He made his ODI debut against West Indies on July 11, 201 and took 2 wickets in the match.


His T20I debut was made a year later against England in which he took two wickets again.


Rise to Glory


Boult rose to prominence quite early in his career. Just in his 29th test match, he got past the 100 wickets mark.


Two years since his debut, he was New Zealand’s highest wicket-taker in the format.


In the 2015 World Cup as well, he ended up as the joint highest wicket-taker picking up 22 wickets.


Low Points


The only scar in his phenomenal career has been the so far shorter span of his career in the shorter formats of the game. Sometimes, it has been injuries, sometimes conditions and sometimes simply rotation. But he has been in and out of the team.


Club Career


So far in his career, he has played in two leagues. One of them was the home tournament in New Zealand in which he plays for the Northern Knights.


He also plays in the Indian Premier League in which he started with the Sunrisers Hyderabad and then went on to play for the Kolkata Knight Riders.


Delhi Daredevils acquired Boult’s services for the 2018 edition of the tournament.


Records


Boult was the highest wicket-taker in the 2015 ICC World Cup.


He was also ranked the ICC World No. 1 bowler in ODIs in January 2016.
