PAK vs NZ: “One Of The Proudest Achievements Any New Zealander Could Have”


New Zealand beat India by eight wickets in the inaugural World Test Championship Final 2021 at the Rose Bowl in Southampton to claim their first ICC title. Fast bowler Trent Boult believes that winning the World Test Championship is one of the proudest achievements any New Zealander can have.

The left-arm seamer was instrumental in New Zealand’s win over India, taking five wickets in two innings and bowling the opposition to low scores. After finishing runners-up in the 2015 and 2019 World Cups, the Black Caps finally won the ICC trophy. Kyle Jamieson was the player of the match after scoring 21 runs off 16 balls and taking seven wickets in the first innings.

It Will Never Happen Again – Trent Boult

Speaking to The Age, Boult stated that it was a huge achievement for a nation of 5 million people and that beating India on that occasion was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“For us even to get to that stage as a Test-playing nation of however many people (five million), playing probably only eight Tests a year – if that. To get two years of results to get into the final, and then beat India – 1.4 billion people – will never happen again. I think that’s one of the proudest achievements any New Zealander could have, when you look at the sheer size of it,” said Boult.

I’m Incredibly Proud Of What I’ve Achieved In The Test Arena – Trent Boult

The 33-year-old defended his decision to step away from his central contract, saying it opened the door for other players on the sidelines. The bowler said he is very proud of his achievements in Test cricket but feels he has reached the end of a string.

“I’m incredibly proud of what I’ve achieved in the Test arena. But I’ve got three young kids and I look at my career as a length of string. I feel like I’m at the later end of that piece of string. I’ve chosen to go into two other leagues around the busiest time in the New Zealand cricket summer. I do understand that the decision to give back my contract obviously is going to open the door for other people,” he concluded.
