Trent Boult still optimistic about playing Cricket World Cup 2023 after relinquishing central contract
New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult has retained the hope of being a part of the ODI World Cup 2023 to be held in India next year in 2023. Trent Boult has also expressed his views regarding international cricket and franchise cricket.
However, the left-arm pacer declared that his immediate target is to give his best for the Melbourne Stars in the upcoming edition of the Big Bash League (BBL).
The left-arm Kiwi bowler relinquished his central contract in August to take part in T20 franchise cricket leagues. New Zealand Cricket (NZC) had also announced that they respect and appreciate his contribution, but will give priority to centrally contracted players.
Trent Boult, who is going to play for Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League, briefly said about his hopes of playing in the ODI World Cup next year, saying, "It is a guess at the moment, but I definitely still want to be there. The 2023 World Cup next year in India is a big event that I would love to be a part of. But there is still a lot of time to be played as well as cricket."
Let us tell you that after the end of the central contract with the New Zealand team, Trent Boult is focusing more on the franchise league.
He further said about franchise cricket, "In the near future, I am clearly looking forward to focus on the Big Bash League and I will also be in Dubai in a couple of weeks for the international T20 league. I am very excited to be in the Big Bash League. I have played a lot of international cricket and now I have got the opportunity to go to some franchises."
Trent Boult has done exceptionally well for New Zealand. He was also a part of the Kiwi team in the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2022.
