Ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC) final against India, New Zealand pacer Trent Boult praised the skills possessed by the Indian bowling department. The official Twitter handle of the International Cricket Council (ICC) shared a video in which Bolt talks about the upcoming WTC final at the Ageas Bowl in Birmingham from June 18. “First of all, they (Team India) are very talented cricketers, they tour very well,” Boult said. “They adapt to the conditions, and they have some weapons in their attack and have got all the skills there. “

Boult also expressed his enthusiasm and eagerness to play on such a big stage. “Just as excited as everyone else and yes, obviously looking forward to playing a bigger role in the big stage coming up in the next few days. It’s been a while,” he added.
Boult also said that New Zealand will have to make a good plan against this strong Indian team.
“I have never played here (The Ages Bowl) before, but I am sure we will research it thoroughly and come up with a good game-plan for this strong Indian team,” he added.
“By all means, we won’t take them lightly. It’s going to be a great match-up,” he said.
Boult was not part of the New Zealand outfit that drew the rain-hit first Test against England, but he was instrumental in his team’s eight-wicket victory in the second Test.
The win took New Zealand to the top of the ICC Test rankings, overtaking India.
