Cricket News: Will Trent Boult play in the 2023 ODI World Cup? | Update on whether Trent Boult will play for New Zealand

Trent Boult has reached a compromise agreement with New Zealand Cricket (NZC) where the board has given him a casual playing deal in contrast to the other 20 players who have received full-time contracts.

Boult gave up his NZC central contract in August last year. However, the pacer has reportedly committed to represent the national team in the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup that will be held from October 5 to November 19 in India.

He had stated his intention of playing in more T20 leagues across the world. Boult, 33, also wanted to spend more time with his family. He, however, turned up for the Kiwis in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia last year.

Similarly, Boult’s commitment to play for New Zealand in big-ticket ICC tournaments remains undeterred regardless of his greater commitment to franchise cricket in recent times.

Boult had a terrific stint with the Rajasthan Royals (RR) despite their inability to qualify for the playoffs in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) season. He has been a regular in the IPL over the years and has toured India multiple times with New Zealand since the early part of the previous decade.

That experience will hold him in good stead during the 50-over World Cup as well as the Kiwis look to go one step better and lift the championship after their runners-up finish in the last two editions of the tournament. Colin de Grandhomme and Martin Guptill are the other major releases from the NZC central contract list.

NZC centrally contracted players 2023-23: Finn Allen, Tom Blundell, Michael Bracewell, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Tom Latham, Adam Milne, Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Blair Tickner, Neil Wagner, Kane Williamson, Will Young
