Mustafizur is skillful, I am lethal: Trent Boult

New Zealand pacer Trent Boult is finding it tough to make it to the playing XI in the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp. Interestingly, the bowler had to sit out during the recently concluded World T20 as well, in order to heed to the requirements of the team.

Talking about how tricky it is to find a place in the playing XI of the Sunrisers, the pacer said it is tough with the kind of bowlers they have in the side. But he said he is raring to go whenever he gets his opportunity. ”Yes, it’s a tricky one to find the right balance. The team has been performing extremely well. We have played some good cricket. Last night too we were doing it really well. There’s some great quality in the entire squad. Mustafiz has been leading the attack very nicely, well-backed by Bhuvi, who is a neat wicket-taker and Nehra as well. It’s healthy competition. Hopefully, if I do get a chance I can help like these guys take Sunrisers home,” he quoted.

Asked about what difference does he bring to the drawing board and how different he is from Mustafizur Rahman, the left-arm pacer cited that Mustafizur relies on change of pace while he is more lethal in his approach. “I like to think I can offer something with my aggressive kind of swing bowling, trying to take wickets,” he quoted.

“We both are entirely different bowlers. I like to think of myself as a more lethal, swing bowler who can take wickets up front whereas he is very skilful with his change of paces. His yorkers are superb as well. But each offers something in a way they can,” Boult said on his comparison with Mustafizur.
