Islamabad crashed out without reaching the knockout stages for the 1st time.
New Zealand paceman Trent Boult and all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme have been ruled out of the second test against England in Hamilton after sustaining injuries, the team said on Wednesday. Boult had strained a muscle overlying one of his ribs on his right side but was cleared of bone stress by a scan, the team said. De Grandhomme had torn a left lower abdominal muscle, sustained during the second fielding innings in the first test win over England at Bay Oval. Northern Districts all-rounder Daryl Mitchell has been called up to the Test team for the first time whereas spinner Todd Astle and fast bowler Lockie Ferguson, who was released to play the domestic One-Day Cup, have re-joined the team. Both Boult and de Grandhomme suffered muscle injuries in the first Test in Mount Maunganui, which the hosts won by an innings and 65 runs. Boult was only able to bowl one over on the final day and walked off the field after experiencing pain on the right side of his ribs. Boult and de Grandhomme will now be recuperating for the upcoming three-test series in Australia starting December 7.
New Zealand paceman Trent Boult is in doubt for the second Test against England due to a rib problem. Boult was forced from the field on day five of the opening Test in Mount Maunganui on Monday after experiencing pain on the right side of his ribs. The experienced Black Caps quick will undergo an MRI scan on Tuesday. Boult had figures of 0-6 in the second innings at Bay Oval, where the 30-year-old claimed 1-97 in England's first innings. On the other hand, De Grandhomme played a crucial role in the first test against Australia. The all-rounder picked up two wickets and scored 65 runs on fist innings, which helps the team to make a partnership and projected a big score.
