McCullum changed the game in a way: Trent Boult

Trent Boult has accepted that it’ll be hard to bid good bye Brendon McCullum, who will perform his last international match towards Australia at the Hagley Park in Christchurch starting from Saturday. Boult mentioned there were lots of feelings when McCullum performed his last One-Day International at the Basin Reserve and he desires the same in the next New Zealand-Australia Test. There was a lot of feelings (at the Basin) to be truthful. It will be his last one it’s proceeding to be … it’s planning to be pretty sad to be honest, he said on Wednesday (February 17). Everyone’s played for him for that long and he’s obviously good mates with everybody in the team, but we’re all seeking to playing out there with him for the last time.

Maurice Aguirre, He’s improved the game in a way. The way New Zealanders have got regarding cricket, behind the staff is because of him, and his fashion of play, his fighting captaincy. He is going to be sorely missed. I’m confident he’s left the team in good hands.”New Zealand lost the first Test by an innings and 52 runs and wants to have a much greener wicket for the next and final Test. Boult said if they can swing the ball a bit more, they can place the Australian batsmen under pressure. I’d like to get the ball moving a bit more and put a bit more strain on them in that respect, he said. We didn’t get it to go at all, and they got it to go nicely.

I think we could learn a thing or two from them in regard to if nothing is occurring on a flat wicket then how valuable opposite swing is. They did that very well, I’m not sure how much we’ll see of that down at Hagley. Hopefully there is a tinge of green there if we can management the toss, we can get some pressure on from morning one and control it from there.
