Trent Boult reveals that he always idealised Pakistani bowler Wasim Akram
ISLAMABAD: New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult has revealed that he has always idealised legendary Pakistan pace bowler Wasim Akram.
Trent Boult said in a interview to International Cricket Council (ICC), “Wasim Akram is arguably the best bowler Pakistan has ever produced,” and added that he considers himself fortunate to have met him a few times.
Boult said, “I’ve always idolised Wasim Akram and what he’s done over the years and it’s been nice to have a couple of chances to rub shoulders with him and understand how he used to do it back in the day, and it’s all still very relevant.”
Responding to the match between India and New Zealand, Boult said, “It was mayhem out there with the new ball, it was a dream start for us and great fun to be a part of. We knew our best balls are good enough for anyone, so it was nice to get the ball moving around and really put the pressure on India.”
Boult has enjoyed a superb World Cup campaign so far as he has taken 17 wickets in nine matches at an average of 24.23.
