Trent Boult hopes to win the 2023 World Cup after two previous chances fell through

Trent Boult hopes to win the 2023 World Cup after two previous chances fell through. Trent Boult hopes New Zealand will win the 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup after reaching two straight finals. Trent Boult is back in the New Zealand fold just in time for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in India, despite turning down a central contract in August 2022.

Boult, who last played an ODI for the Black Caps in September 2022, was included in the squad for the four-match ODI series against England.

Boult has his sights set on not just reaching the third straight World Cup final after coming so close in 2019, but also breaking the World Cup curse as the two teams start their final preparations for the major tournament.

The idea to return and work towards an ODI World Cup has always been in the back of Boult’s mind. There is a historical component there. Previous campaigns have been incredibly exciting occasions for us. Just eager to participate and, perhaps, make a significant contribution.

I was just considering lifting something pretty shiny that we were very near to four years ago. 

That is the main emphasis. Boult discussed his choice to turn down a central deal for a better playing schedule a year ago, but he made it plain that playing for New Zealand has always been his first priority.

Moving out of the New Zealand cricket bubble, in a sense, wasn’t an easy decision to make just over a year ago, he said. “I never wanted it to be about franchise cricket or New Zealand. I just wanted to make the most of my remaining years as a bowler and recognised the reality that my career is only short.

Yes, I’m still as eager as ever to represent my nation and, perhaps, pull off a remarkable feat with the lads during the next months. I am impatient.

A replay of the thrilling final from the 2019 tournament will feature New Zealand in the opening match of the Cricket World Cup 2023 against England in Ahmedabad on October 5. Their matches against India on October 22 at scenic Dharamsala and the Trans-Tasman encounter against Australia on October 28 at the same location are among their other notable events.
