Domestic Career

Trent Boult, the left-handed swing bowler, made his First-Class debut when he was picked for the New Zealand’ A’ team for the tour of India in 2007.

IPL Career

After his impressive performance in the 2015 CWC, Trent Boult came on the radar of the IPL franchise, and Sunrisers Hyderabad snapped him up in 2015. The SRH side was already stacked with gun bowlers like Dale Steyn, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Karn Sharma, and Praveen Kumar. As a result, Boult only got to play 7 matches where he performed decently by picking up 9 wickets. He didn’t get any opportunity to gain in the next season, and SRH let him go.

In 2017, the Delhi Capitals (then daredevils) side bought Trent Boult, and the 2018 season proved to be Boult’s finest season in IPL thus far. The left-arm picked up 18 wickets from 14 games in 2018. However, after a modest IPL in 2019, where he only played 5 matches, the Kiwi was again let go. The Kiwi left-arm pacer was then bought by Mumbai Indians from Delhi Capitals in 2019 for Rs 3.2 crore, where he joins fellow New Zealand paceman Mitchell McClenaghan.

International Career

ODI Career

On January 21, 2009, Boult was selected for the New Zealand squad for the one-day series against Australia at just 19 years of age. Boult only managed to play in the warm-up game against the Prime Minister’s XI and went wicketless off seven overs. During the tour, Boult was clocked as the fastest bowler touring with the New Zealand team with the highest speed of 143.3 km/h.

He made a comeback into the ODI side for the home series against South Africa in October 2014 but did not feature in the games against Pakistan in UAE. Due to his ability to swing the ball, both ways at pace, the selectors named him in the squad for the 2015 World Cup.

Boult had a tough time breaking into the limited-overs sides at first due to a perception that he doesn’t move the white ball as much as the red one. But his effectiveness in Test cricket was too compelling to ignore: he raced past 100 wickets in his 29th match, and in 2013, only two years since his debut, he was New Zealand’s top-wicket taker. It was a perfect fit with Brendon McCullum placing a high premium on attacking cricket in the shorter versions and Boult proving himself as a bowler who preferred getting batsmen out rather than keeping them quiet. Confirmation came in World Cup 2015 when he ended up the joint-leading wicket-taker with 22 scalps in nine matches, including 5 for 27 in an epic victory over Australia.

In the fourth ODI of India’s 2018–19 New Zealand tour, Boult claimed his fifth five-wicket haul, the joint-most for a New Zealand bowler alongside Richard Hadlee. He returned figures of 5/21, helping his team dismiss India for their lowest total in ODIs since 2010. New Zealand recorded one of their biggest wins, and Boult was named man of the match.

In CWC 2019, Trent Boult played a pivotal role in taking New Zealand to the tournament’s finals. He picked 17 wickets in the 10 matches that he played. However, Boult is remembered for the catch on the cow-corner boundary in the final at Lord’s, where Trent Boult, after taking the catch, stepped on the skirting and allowed Ben Stokes a life at the dying stages of the match. Stokes made the Kiwis pay as the World Cup dream once again got shattered in front of them.

Test Career

Boult made his Test debut in the 2011–12 season, in the Second Test against Australia in Hobart, in a match won by New Zealand by 7 runs, New Zealand’s first test win in Australia since 1985, and their first test win over Australia since 1993. He has had a good start as he has picked up wickets against England, West Indies, India, and Sri Lanka. His moment of glory came in the second Test against West Indies at Basin Reserve, where he got his first 10-wicket haul. 

Throughout the 2011 and 2012 seasons, the left-hand pacer continued to churn up impressive performances and became an ideal foil to another young pacer Tim Southee. He carried this good form into 2013 when he took 19 wickets in 5 against England, including his second-best test match innings bowling figures of 6/68 at Eden Park in March.

In the first-ever day-night Test in history, Boult became the first New Zealander and second overall after Josh Hazlewood to take a five-wicket haul in a day-night Test.

In 2018, Boult produced his best figures in Test cricket, taking 6/32 in the First Test against England in Auckland. England was bowled out for 58 in their first innings, and New Zealand went on to win the Test by an innings and 49 runs. Boult was named man of the match.
