ICC World Cup 2019: I’m Living the Last Over Throughout My Mind a Lot – Trent Boult
New Zealand speedster Trent Boult is still thinking about the final over he had bowled during the grand finale of the ICC World Cup when England required 15 to win the ODI showpiece. However, Boult had conceded 14 to push the final into Super Over for the first time.
The left-arm paceman Boult had also bowled the Super Over in which he conceded 15 runs when Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes were at the crease.
Despite claiming 17 wickets in the twelfth edition of the World Cup, Boult is thoroughly disappointed that he could have done far better to help his side to lift the maiden World Cup title following back-to-back World Cup finals.
Boult misfires a few in the finale:
In 2015, when Kiwis co-hosted the event, they lost the final to Trans-Tasman arch-rivals by seven wickets at the MCG.
After returning home following a prolonged gap of four months, Boult is keen to have a walk with his dog.
“Well, I’m gonna go home for the first time in about four months. Probably gonna walk my dog along the beach and try and put it aside. I’m sure he won’t be too angry at me,” Boult told reporters in the UK
Losing final is a hard pill to swallow:
The 29-year-old Boult had further maintained that losing final is hard to swallow following a pulsating final in London.
“It’s not gonna be something that disappears in the next couple of days. It’s probably something that’s gonna be hard to swallow for the next couple of years,” Boult added.
Also, Boult revealed he had struggled to forget the catch he took when he stepped on the boundary ropes. Interestingly, Boult had made a mess during the 49th over when he conceded six to Ben Stokes on the bowling of Jimmy Neesham.
“I suppose it’s just natural to nitpick and pull apart a game like that. You just wonder those little kind of things that went your way, or didn’t go your way or whatever, it could’ve been a totally different game. Yeah, of course, I’m living the last over throughout my mind a lot,” Boult further said.
Boult reiterated that they could have done far better to lay hands on the coveted trophy. The Black Caps were the fourth semi-finalist after having a better net run-rate than Pakistan.
Kane Williamson-led side then thumps India in the semis to set a date for the final which they, unfortunately, lost after scoring fewer boundaries than England.
