Great Seven Wicket Haul in 2015
Southee (7/33) made history in 2015 by becoming the first bowler from New Zealand to take seven wickets in an ODI. Two years later, his countryman Boult accomplished the same feat by taking 7/34 against the West Indies. In New Zealand, Southee and Boult both completed their seven figures in their career.
Southee completes 200 wickets in 50 overs of cricket, becoming the second-fastest Kiwi bowler to do so. Among New Zealand bowlers, Mills tops this category with 200 kills in 135 ODIs. His current closest competition is still Vettori. And as of the right moment, Southee has played in 149 ODIs.
Southee-Boult partnership throughout these years
The important attribute of Southee is his rapid reading of a surface, which allows him to change his pace, lengths, and line with ease. He had a clever nature that allowed him to adjust the pace over time, a talent that made him stand out in white-ball cricket.
Trent Boult, a player of extraordinary potential, joined the team recently. They together have formed one of the world’s top new-ball partnerships. The pair benefits from one another and frequently causes chaos in the opposing batting lineups.
The Southee-Boult partnership played a significant role in Brendon McCullum’s ultra-aggressive captaincy style. Which changed the cricketing fortunes of the New Zealand team.
