After the draw of the Lord’s Test, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson made a big announcement.
Kane Williamson praises Trent Boult’s return in the second Test
The first Test match played between England and New Zealand at Lord’s ended in a draw. This draw means that now the decisive battle of this two-Test series will be held at Edgbaston. The second and last Test in both the teams will start from June 10. But before that, after the draw of the Lord’s Test, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson made a big announcement. This announcement was going to frighten England before the second Test, then it was going to encourage the Kiwi team. Actually, Kiwi captain Kane had blown the bugle of the return of Trent Boult.
The New Zealand captain said that “Trent Boult has reached England. He is eager to get down on the field and bowl. He will be seen in action soon.” It is clear from this statement of the Kiwi captain that Trent Boult can be seen playing the second Test. And if this happens, then the Saudis who were seen taking the iron alone at Lord’s, they will get to see their real bowling partner in Edgbaston.
The first coach had said – will return from WTC Final
However, earlier the news was that Bolt would be out of the entire Test series against England. This was said by New Zealand coach Gary Stead himself. He had said that “Bolt may not be seen playing in the second Test against England at Edgbaston. But he is set to play in the WTC Final.” However, after this statement of the coach, a statement also came from Trent Boult which was quite the opposite.
Bolt himself also expressed hope of a comeback from the second Test
Trent Boult said, “He is feeling better now. The World Test Championship is a big stage. But, it is expected that before that I take the field in the second Test against England. He said that I am excited to bowl with the Duke Ball in the flowing winds of England. I am going to have more fun doing this in the final of the World Test Championship.
The captain’s seal on Bolt’s point, the coach does not work?
Even before coming to England, Bolt has been training continuously and preparing himself for the match. Now captain Kane Williamson has also confirmed his chances of playing in the second Test. It is clear from this that either the coach of New Zealand did not have complete information, the matter related to Trent Boult or the Kiwi of the coach does not run in the team. By the way, the question is also that how can it be good if the coach does not know about the stir happening in the team.
