New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult is not confident of his availability for the first T20I match against West Indies. The first match of the T20I series will take place at Eden Park in Auckland on November 27.
The entire New Zealand contingent who participated in the Indian Premier League returned to their country for the resumption of international cricket.
The players will be under quarantine for the period of 14 days and Trent Boult said he isn’t sure of playing in the first T20I match against WI.
“It’s my favourite format and I want to make sure I can ramp up towards them,” Boult told stuff.co.nz.
“If I can be involved in the T20s, then that’s exciting, too. But we finish up here a day before that starts, so I’m not too sure,” he added.
New Zealand will host West Indies for white and red ball series starting at the end of November, followed by the series against Pakistan.
Both the teams will engage in three-match T20I series, followed by two-match test series starting from December 3 at Hamilton.
