“Oh Rohit Sharma!” : Hilarious ICC captions on video of Trent Boult hitting the net

New Zealand’s Trent Boult beats in the net

New Zealand got off to a strong start to the ICC T20 World Cup campaign with an 89-run mega win over hosts Australia in the opening match of the Super 12 stage of the tournament. The Kiwis, who lost to the Australians in last year’s T20 World Cup final, had all their best guns firing with the bat. But that hasn’t stopped lower-order hitters from focusing on their batting skills.

Ahead of the team’s next game against Afghanistan on Wednesday, bowling great Trent Boult was seen enjoying a long session in the net, brandishing his willow.

The video of Boult hitting the net was posted on Instagram by the ICC. The ICC posted interesting captions about each of Boult’s shots in the video, starting by comparing him to India captain Rohit Sharma.

Boult will be a crucial cog in the New Zealand wheel along with bowling partner Tim Southee. Both point guards had great careers for the Blackcaps, but they don’t have a limited ICC trophy to show for their efforts.

Over the years, New Zealand’s only ICC white-ball cricket trophy has been the 2000 ICC Knockout Trophy, the predecessor of the ICC Champions Trophy.
