Trent Boult also expressed his displeasure on his side not winning the warm-up tie PTI

Following a 30-run defeat at the hands of Board President’s XI in the first warm-up tie at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai on Tuesday, New Zealand‘s pacemanTrent Boult lauded efforts of Mumbai’s Prithvi Shaw. Shaw played a commendable knock of 66 runs, apart from picking 3 wickets. Boult also expressed his displeasure on his team not winning the warm-up tie. He further admitted that he was not as successful as he should have been in taking wickets at the top of the innings. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs New Zealand 2017-18, 1st ODI at Mumbai

“I heard he was 17, I couldn’t quite believe it. He played very nicely. I think the ball swung around nicely at the start, and it didn’t seem to trouble him. He’s probably one of many who has a promising career ahead of him, if all things go well. But very impressed from the first look,” Boult praised Shaw, as reported by PTI.

“It’s satisfying to re-familiarise ourselves with the conditions here. It was very hot out there this afternoon, but it’s disappointing to not come away with a win. Good opportunities to try different tactics in terms of a bowling plan. To come here and try bowl good line and length against some of the best players in the world is probably not the best recipe in getting them out. Just trying few things. They negated it very nicely, played a few shots,” he explained on New Zealand’s failure.

“A lot of the credit goes to their openers for getting the platform for the rest. They put a very challenging total on the board.If you can get two or three down inside the first powerplay, it can really put a lot of pressure on the opposition and set up the game. But they played nicely. The ball did what we wanted to do in terms of swing and got line and length, but they kept it out easily. So, coming back and taking wickets in clumps is important for us. Today, it worked in parts and not in some,” he continued.

“It’s a big challenge for us to step up and hopefully upset a side that’s in very, very good form. You need to be accurate everywhere, the room for error is very small. The batsmen are very talented, they like to hit boundaries and they are able to hit boundaries of your best balls. So the accuracy has to be there, the fitness has to be there to keep delivering,”he said again.

Speaking on if he looks to bowl fast or swing the ball, he said, “I look to be as aggressive as I can in the later spells. ODI cricket is very challenging, generally offering very flat surface and not much from the bowling point of view. The accuracy is where I feel I can offer the most. I feel I can hit Yorkers, put dots in between and build up pressure like that. We have got a good bowling attack, an experienced attack, a group that has travelled here before. In IPL, we’ve had exposure to these conditions before.”
