Trent Boult became only the fourth New Zealand bowler and only the third fast bowler to reach the milestone of 300 Test wickets as he took a five-wicket haul against Bangladesh in the second test going on between the two sides at Hagley Oval in Christchurch.
"It definitely means a lot. I am sure it will sink in over the coming days. It comes with a bit of hard work, fitness and pride in your performance,” Boult said in an interview post-Bangladesh innings which ended on 126 thanks to his spell of 5-43.
Boult was also pleased by the fact that Tim Southee, his long time buddy and a proud member of the 300-club was alongside him t celebrate the success. "It is very special to have Timmy (Southee) out there with me this afternoon. To join the names like Daniel (Vettori) and Sir Richard (Hadlee) is also very special. Winning the Test match and getting back in the series will be special as well. It is definitely the focus at the moment,” said the 32-year-old.
“I am sure we can enjoy a few more wickets together. Our friendship has dated back many years. I think we met towards the end of Under-17s. We have had a career to date of probably ten-plus years underneath the black cap. I am also learning off him,” he added further about Southee.
