Trent Boult will not partake in the second Test against South Africa at the Hagley Oval this week with New Zealand reluctant to risk an injury to the left-arm pacer who hasn't had adequate training time to bear the workload of a Test match. Boult missed New Zealand's emphatic win in the first Test as he and his wife welcomed their third child. While the 32-year-old will train with the squad in the build-up to this week's Test, he'll next represent the Blackcaps only in June during the team's tour of England with New Zealand Cricket expected to allow IPL-bound players to miss the Netherlands assignment.
