New Zealand team will miss out on the services of Trent Boult in the second Test as the new ball bowler has been ruled out of the game due to an injury on his right knee. He was feeling a bit of discomfort during the practice session ahead of the second Test, but coach Mike Hesson revealed that Boult has been facing this issue from past two months, “Trent has had a minor discomfort in his knee dating back to the tour of India, which we’ve been managing in recent weeks,” Black Caps coach Mike Hesson said.

“Unfortunately he irritated it further while fielding in the first test. He bowled again and we were optimistic he would be ready for Hamilton, but during training on Wednesday felt further pain and has subsequently been ruled out of the test.”

“We’re hopeful at this stage that he’ll be available for the Chappell-Hadlee series in Australia, but will continue to monitor him over the coming days,” Hesson said.

Trent Boult played a crucial role in the demolition of Pakistan batting line up in both the innings as he grabbed a pair in first innings followed by a three-for in the second innings. Doug Bracewell, Boult’s replacement has already joined the squad before the start of the third Test from 25 November at Hamilton.
