Trent Bout, World Test championship winner and multiple World Cup finalist, has opted to leave from New Zealand’s central contract, causing a stir in the cricketing world. After numerous rounds of deliberation, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has approved the left-arm fast bowler’s choice. While this does not mark the end of Boult’s outstanding career, it does diminish his prospects of playing international cricket as the NZC is expected to favour contractual players.

“This has been a really difficult decision for me, and I’d like to thank NZC for their assistance in getting here.” Playing cricket for my country was a childhood goal of mine, and I’m extremely pleased of all I’ve accomplished with the Blackcaps over the past 12 years. This decision is ultimately about my wife Gert and our three young boys. “The family has always been the most important motivator for me, and I’m comfortable putting it first and preparing ourselves for life after cricket,” he said.

NEWS | In order to give Trent Boult more time with his family and to be available for domestic leagues, NZC has decided to release him from his central contract. Boult will finish his tour of the West Indies on time.

Boult decided to spend more time with his wife and children. He has taken 317 Test wickets, 169 ODI wickets, and 62 T20 wickets. It was a hard decision to make, according to Boult.
