New Zealand Top 1st Innings Bowler: Boult V West Indies

Cricket - Test Match - 30 Nov 22:00

West Indies come to New Zealand after their batsman struggled massively against England in conditions that could well be similar to what they face against New Zealand tomorrow. Although a few days away, the wicket had plenty of grass on it and even if is taken off it will not shift as dramatically to favour spin in the first innings. This leaves a choice of what New Zealand seamer to select.

The stand out candidates are always Boult and Southee who have been an excellent new ball pairing for some years now and have always flourished in helpful conditions. Southee however misses this test match making Boult the clear front runner.



Boult has 190 test match wickets at under 30 runs a piece. Neil Wagner has 130 wickets and has been a very useful weapon for NZ in recent times - the role of Wagner though has hardly ever been to take the new ball (where a big majority of the damage could be done in this test) and used as someone to run in and make things happen with the older, softer bowl by bowling short pitched bowling in short aggressive spells, which is not the idea scenario for this particular bet.

De Gronhomme - the other seamer has only 6 wickets and is in the side more for his all-round capabilities as opposed to being a genuine test match opening bowler. New Zealand may debut Lockie Ferguson who has plenty of pace, but you would back Boult over a guy making his debut.
