MANCHESTER: Kiwis left-arm pacer Trent Boult has said that his side gained “inspiration” from watching video of Pakistan thrashed India in the ICC Champions Trophy final in 2017.

Trent Boult’s comments come after New Zealand defeated India in nail-biting finish ti advance to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final for second successive time.

Boult took two key wickets in the match as he trapped India skipper Virat Kohli lbw for one run before removing Ravindra Jadeja for 77 where it seemed as if India could potentially secure an incredible come-from-behind win.

Boult admitted that the New Zealand were inspired by the way in which Pakistan defeated India in Champions Trophy 2017 final.

“We watched video clips of Pakistan’s win against India in the Champions Trophy final for inspiration,” Boult was quoted as saying on Twitter.

New Zealand will face hosts England in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 final at the Lord’s Cricket Ground on Sunday.

The match will start at 2:30pm PST.
