Trent Alexander Boult (born 22 July 1989) is a New Zealand cricketer. Born in Rotorua, Boult is a left–arm medium–fast opening bowler and a right–handed batsman. He accompanied the New Zealand A team on their winter training tour in 2007.


On 9 February 2007, Boult took two wickets for 28 runs and scored seven not out against Indias Under–19 team. He then travelled to Malaysia in February 2008 for the Under–19 World Cup.

On 21 January 2009, Boult was selected for the New Zealand squad for the one-day series against Australia at just 19 years of age. Boult only managed to play in the warm up game against the Prime ministers XI and went wicketless of seven overs. During the tour Boult was clocked as the fastest bowler touring with the New Zealand team with a highest speed of 143.3 km/h (89.0 mph).

Boult made his Test debut in the 2011–12 season, in the Second Test against Australia in Hobart, a match won by New Zealand by 7 runs, New Zealands first test win in Australia since 1985 and their first test win over Australia since 1993. He took four wickets in the match; additionally, he scored 21 runs in a tenth-wicket partnership with Chris Martin in the second innings.

In 2012, Boult produced a string of strong performances with the ball against the West Indies, India and Sri Lanka to consolidate his position as Tim Southees new ball partner. He carried this good form into 2013 when he took 19 wickets in 5 tests against England, including his best test match innings bowling figures of 6/68 at Eden Park in March.

After suffering a side strain during New Zealands final test match against England at Leeds, Boult returned to the New Zealand test side for a two test tour of Bangladesh. Boult struggled in the hot and dry conditions, taking just 3 wickets and frenquently straying with his accuracy. However, when back in home conditions against the touring West Indies, Boult swiftly returned to his best. In the second test at the Basin Reserve Boult won man of the match after taking career best figures of 10 for 80 and completing a brilliant one-handed diving catch to his left to dismiss Dinesh Ramdin. In the first innings of the second test on the same venue against India, Boult made another one-handed diving right-handed catch to dismiss Ajinkya Rahane. He also had bowling figures of 4 for 146.

In 2014 T20 series against West Indies, Boults squad number switched from 8 to 18, a number previously worn by Mathew Sinclair.

His brother Jonathon Boult has also played cricket for Northern Districts.
