Trent Boult is one of the best fast bowlers in the world. He is a really good fielder as well and his overall contribution to the game (apart from his batting probably) is of high standards. That is why he is highly regarded in the New Zealand team. Keeping that in mind, he once again showcased his talent on the field.
A video of a brilliant catch by Trent Boult against Bangladesh from the third ODI has gone viral. It was taken off the bowling Matt Henry, who ended up picking four wickets on the day. Overall, it was a one-sided game that one would expect. However, Social Media had a lot to talk about after watching that catch and the celebration that followed.
The Video Of The Catch By Trent Boult That Went Viral And The Celebration That Followed
It was a great catch by Trent Boult off the bowling of Matt Henry. The batsman, Liton Das had made 21 off 21 balls at that point in time. He was looking good, with the Asian side trying to chase down a target of 319. New Zealand had batted really well in the day, losing six wickets to put up that total. Devon Conway scored 126 off of 110 balls and was the Man Of The Match in the game.
It was never going to be easy for the visitors after the home team won the toss and chose to bat. They struggled right through. Despite that, this moment was rather special for a couple of reasons. One obviously is the catch and the second being the celebration.

Well, this celebration is really something. That is what the fans must be feeling. AIR BOULT, the Tweet by ESPNCricInfo read as. The perfect way to define the catch and the lovely celebration that followed. Good to see the fans enjoying their cricket in Wellington and on Social Media.
New Zealand wrapped up the ODI series 3-0 and was always the dominant side. Good to see them perform really well, though Bangladesh needed to step up. However, they failed to do so. That was despite the fact that the hosts were resting some of their key players including skipper Kane Williamson.
Not the best day out in the office for this Bangladeshi side that is not really winning too many games. They will want to work on that and make such improvements. It can really be crucial for their ambitions in the upcoming 50-over World Cup that is to be held in India in 2023. Bangladesh has always been an ambitious side. Whether they can do something big in that tournament or not, remains to be seen.
For now, Trent Boult has taken another brilliant catch and set the world on fire with his fielding. The fans love a great showman and who better than the Kiwi pacer. Great to see some good fielding in a game of cricket. Something you never get tired of watching for sure!!
