New Zealand pacer Trent Boult made it clear that he would like to perform like Shaheen Afridi against India. The two sides will clash in the upcoming game of the ICC T20 World Cup.
New Zealand batter Ross Taylor also believes that the New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson will be hoping to see good performance from his premier pacer.
“Trent Boult would love to set the tone for New Zealand just like Shaheen Shah Afridi did for Pakistan a few days ago,” said Ross Taylor on India Today.
“Boult will be crucial for New Zealand and Kane Williamson will be banking on him to get the early breakthroughs if they bowl first,” added Taylor.
However, the former skipper admitted that Boult has struggled in recent times. “We have seen in the IPL that Boult has struggled upfront for Mumbai Indians. He has not got as many wickets, but his first couple of overs with the new ball will be crucial for New Zealand,” said Taylor.
