Kiwi spearhead ready to Boult
– New Zealand pace spearhead Trent Boult says he is “ticking all the right boxes” in his rehab as he looks to return for a Boxing Day Test against Australia.
Boult, 30, was ruled out of the opener of the three-match series at Perth Stadium with a rib injury as injury-hit New Zealand suffered a 296-run thrashing in the pink-ball Test.
The left-arm quick is back training and said: “[I’m] feeling pretty good. Probably a little bit frustrated to be on the sidelines.” –
