Trent Boult picks the toughest batsman to bowl to in T20 World Cup 2021
The 7th edition of ICC Men's T20 World Cup is set to mark its arrival after the completion of Phase 2 of IPL 2021. The test series between India and England has ended with the last match being postponed due to a covid scare. The management of both sides would be meeting at a later stage regarding the rescheduling of that match.
The cricketers from both these nations are currently in the UK. At the same time, the rest of the IPL members have already reached UAE. It would be worth watching to see when big names like Kohli, Rohit, Rahul, and others will join their respective IPL franchises.
The majority of the countries have named their 15 man squad for the T20 World Cup. The Indian side for the mega event is also out with some shocking inclusions and exclusions in the list. The four nations that could be the game changers in the mega event will be India, Australia, England, and New Zealand.
These four nations have some gigantic names who can help lift the trophy for their side. New Zealand's Trent Boult is the one such outstanding player. With his mind-blowing pace bowling, he can outwit nearly any batsman in this sport.
However, one shocking answer has been obtained from the left-arm pacer. A question was asked to him regarding who would you say would be the most formidable batsman to bowl to this world cup?
Boult named Paul Stirling as the most formidable batsman to bowl to.
One might think that the answer to this question could be Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Steve Smith, or some other players. However, Boult's answer would be shocking for most of the cricket fans.
He answered, "I think there are so many good players out there. Mohammad Rizwan, he is a phenomenal player. Babar Azam, he is a classy player. But I think it will be Paul Stirling."
