Trent Boult Released
New Zealand cricket will release Trent Boult from his central contract so that he may spend more time with his family and be available for domestic competitions.
After multiple meetings with NZC, the 33-year-old fast bowler requested the release, and the organization today approved the plans.

Boult, who has 317 Test wickets, 169 ODI wickets, and 62 T20I wickets under his belt, will now play a far smaller part for the squad in his last years of competition while still being eligible for selection when and if he becomes available.
The left armer made it apparent during negotiations that his desire to travel had lessened and that he wanted to spend more time with his family, according to NZC Chief Executive David White.
We respect Trent’s viewpoint, White added. “While we’re sorry to be losing him as a fully-contracted player, he leaves with our best wishes and our sincere thanks,” the statement continued. “He’s been absolutely honest and up-front with us about his explanation.”
Since making his Test debut in late 2011, Trent has significant impact on the New Zealand team. He is currently regarded as one of the top all-around cricketers in the world. We are quite pleased with his accomplishments.
Trent and I have had multiple meetings. I am confident that Trent is aware that NZC will continue to give players with central or domestic contracts preference when making selections.
It was a hard decision to make, according to Boult.
He remarked, “I’d like to thank NZC for their support in getting to this stage. This has been an extremely challenging decision for me.”
A boyhood passion of mine was to represent my nation in cricket. He continued, “I’m extremely happy with what I’ve been able to do with the Kiwis over the past 12 years.
Family And Wife
This choice ultimately affects my wife Gert and our three young boys. My family has always been my greatest source of motivation. I am happy to prioritize them over cricket while getting ready for life beyond the game.
He acknowledged that the change would reduce his chances of making the national squad.
“I still have a strong desire to represent my country. I believe I am capable of doing so on a global scale, I understand that not having a national contract will reduce my selection prospects, he continued.
Boult added, “Having said that, I feel the timing is right to move into this next phase. As a fast bowler, I know I have a limited career span.
