Trent Boult hopes to ‘create a bit of history’ in World Test Championship final


The left-armer is excited at the prospect of using the Duke ball against India

Trent Boult is eyeing the chance to “create a bit of history” as he prepares to travel to England to join his team-mates ahead of the World Test Championship final against India later this month.

Boult opted to return to New Zealand after the IPL was suspended to spend some time with his family instead of traveling to the UK via the Maldives, even though it meant a further two weeks in managed isolation and the likelihood of missing both Tests against England. Since completing that period, he has been preparing at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui ahead of flying to the UK on Thursday.

“The way the group has travelled and performed around New Zealand and the world, the boys are in a great place to hopefully create a bit of history,” he said.
