New Zealand lose Boult for second cricket Test against Pakistan

New Zealand suffered a blow on the eve of the second Test against Pakistan Thursday when bowling spearhead Trent Boult was ruled out with a knee injury. Matt Henry was expected to be elevated to share the new ball in Hamilton with Tim Southee, although New Zealand delayed naming their side until Friday’s toss. New Zealand coach Mike Hesson said Boult had been troubled by “minor discomfort” in his left knee since the recent India tour and irritated it further in the first Test against Pakistan which New Zealand won by eight wickets.
