Trent Boult is one of the finest fast bowlers of his age, and when he leaves cricket, he will be remembered as an all-time New Zealand great. However, since he isn’t especially well-known for his hitting abilities, you won’t often hear his name mentioned when a new batting record is established.

But that’s exactly what occurred on Tuesday when Boult became the highest-scoring No.11 in Test cricket history. On Day 5 of the second Test at Trent Bridge, Boult hit 17 runs in 15 balls against New Zealand, bringing his career total at the position to 640 runs from 79 innings. Muttiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka previously held the record, scoring 623 runs in 98 innings. Boult bats at No. 11 and averages 16.41. He has an unbeaten 52 against Bangladesh.

It’s worth noting that England veteran James Anderson, who ultimately removed Boult and brought the New Zealand innings to a close, has 618 runs in 165 innings to Boult’s 618. Boult’s innings was part of a 35-run partnership with Daryl Mitchell for the tenth wicket, extending New Zealand’s advantage to over 300 runs. As a result, they set a 299-run goal for England in the second Test, ensuring a series victory.
