Trent Boult of New Zealand stated he wanted “another crack” at the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup, which will be staged in India in October-November next year.

Boult was a part of the New Zealand team that finished runners-up in both the 2015 and 2019 ODI World Cups.

Boult detailed his conversation with skipper Kane Williamson following the 2019 World Cup final loss. The pace bowler has been nominated to New Zealand’s squad for the Chappell-Hadlee ODI series against Australia next month, just days after leaving Cricket New Zealand.

“A hundred percent” (on his hopes to play ODI World Cup). I remember chatting to Kane Williamson after the World Cup final in 2019 at Lord’s and telling him that we want to be there in four years. It is only a few months away, and there is a lot of desire to try again for that trophy,” said Boult, who has picked 177 wickets in 96 ODIs.

In addition, Boult is anticipated to lead New Zealand’s pace bowling attack in the upcoming World T20 in Australia. He is conscious that not having a central contract will limit his prospects of being selected for national duty, but the seamer remains hopeful of playing Test cricket.

“I am completely aware that my decision to return the contract will have an impact on that selection. I am taking it week by week.”

“The next series is in Pakistan, followed by a match against England at my home stadium in the new year, but it is too far away to tell. I will leave it to New Zealand Cricket and respect their judgment “He stated.

Boult also expressed hope that his choice to forego a central contract to spend more time with his family and play in overseas T20 competitions will not harm his Test future. New Zealand will host Pakistan for two Tests as part of the World Test Championship (WTC) cycle in December 2022-January 2023.
