Bolt leaves New Zealand cricket’s central contract, will give priority to family
New Zealand’s star fast bowler Trent Boult has taken a shocking decision. Trent Bold has distanced himself from the central contract of New Zealand Cricket. After this decision, Trent Boult will be seen playing very little international cricket. Trent Boult says that his family is more important to him and he wants to spend as much time as possible with her. However, Trent Boult will be available for T20 leagues to be held around the world.
Trent Boult has played 78 test matches for New Zealand. Apart from this, he has also played more than 130 limited overs matches for the Kiwi team. Bolt called this decision extremely difficult. He said, “It was a very difficult decision. I am thankful for the support I have received from New Zealand Cricket.
Bolt further said, “It was my childhood dream to play cricket for New Zealand. I am proud of what I have achieved in the last 12 years. My decision is for my wife and my three children. Family has always been the most important thing to me. I am trying to put family before cricket in my life.
Bolt’s chances of playing decreased
Bolt, however, can be seen representing New Zealand in important matches. The star fast bowler said, “It is my desire to keep playing for the country now. Right now I have skills left to perform in international cricket.
The absence of a central contract, however, will reduce the chances of Bolt’s selection. New Zealand Cricket CEO David White has expressed disappointment over Bolt’s decision. David White, however, wished Bolt the best of luck in the future. Bolt is currently the number one bowler in the world in ODI cricket. He has taken 169 wickets in 93 matches.
