Trent Boult Picks Rohit Sharma As Best Opener

Speaking to the broadcaster before the start of the India-New Zealand match, Trent Boult picked Rohit Sharma as the unrivaled maestro of opening batters in the world at the moment.

“Rohit Sharma is the best opener in the world,” Trent Boult told Star Sports.

Rohit Sharma started his World Cup campaign with a duck against Australia in Chennai. However, the batter bounced back with a brilliant century against Afghanistan. He went on to score a quickfire 86 runs against Pakistan, followed by 48 against Bangladesh.

They’ve Been Playing Some Good Cricket – Trent Boult

Earlier, ace New Zealand pacer praised the Indian team, highlighting their strength and positive approach to the game. He emphasized the importance of staying focused, playing in the moment, and not getting ahead of themselves.

“They’re [India] a powerful team, they cover all bases. They’ve been playing some good cricket but it’s been a team that we’ve enjoyed playing. Nothing changes from our point of view really. It’s about going out there and being positive and doing the things that work well.”

“Not to get too far ahead of ourselves and stay in that moment and play the game as it unfolds is probably a key message. Both undefeated, I’m sure it will be a cracker,” said Boult, as quoted by Reuters.

The left-arm pacer failed to deliver up to expectation in the marquee tournament, picking up just 5 wickets in four matches at an average of  29 and an impressive economy rate of 4.14.
