“With young families, it isn’t easy to play both,” Twitter react to Trent Boult stepping back from International cricket

Trent Boult shocked the cricket fraternity when the New Zealand cricket board announced the pullback of the cricketer from International Cricket.

A 33-years-old New Zealand pacer, Trent Boult, shocked the cricket fraternity by pulling back from International cricket. The decision started doing rounds on social media after the New Zealand Cricket Board released the player from central cricket. It is learned that the player had requested the cricket board to release him from the central contract so that he is available to play domestic T20 leagues around the world and also spend quality time with his family. Boult will have a lesser role in International cricket but he can be considered for national duty when he makes himself available.

“We respect Trent’s position,” New Zealand Cricket chief executive White said on Wednesday (August 10). “He’s been completely honest and up-front with us about his reasoning and, while we’re sad to be losing him as a fully-contracted player, he leaves with our best wishes and our sincere thanks. Twitter soon started making rounds wondering about the exit of Trent Boult from the central contract, further, shrinking his chances of getting selected for the national team.
