New Zealand seamer Trent Boult has been one of the integral members of the national team in their recent dominant run in Test cricket. Trent Boult’s penetrative bowling with the new ball has often set the tone for some of New Zealand’s victories and played an instrumental role in their World Test Championship victory. Following the Kiwis’ most significant ICC win to date, the left-arm seamer composed a song dedicating it to all his teammates.

Trent Boult, currently quarantining in Auckland after arriving from Southampton, has utilized his time well by composing a catchy song. The almost two-minute tune rehashes New Zealand’s eight-wicket win against a formidable Indian side at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. It starts with Boult paying tribute to opener Devon Conway through the line “tired of the white-ball life”. Conway scored a double-hundred on Test debut and was one of the two batsmen to make a fifty in the World Test Championship final.

The left-arm seamer composed the song with the Crowd Goes Wild’s James McOnie, who referred to Colin de Grandhome’s hairstyle that became one of the talking points during the World Test Championship final. Finally, the swing bowler praised captain Kane Williamson, dedicating the memorable triumph to him. Furthermore, Boult looked back to Ross Taylor hitting the winning runs, claiming through the song that it was a redemption for the veteran batsman.

While Kyle Jamieson picked the man of the match award, Trent Boult’s contributions were as crucial. The Rotorua-born cricketer dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja in the first innings, followed by Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, and Ravichandran Ashwin in the second. He grabbed figures of 36.1-6-86-5 in the game as Kiwis were crowned the inaugural World Test Champions.
