Trent Boult Colin de Grandhomme Declared Fit For Australia Tour

De Grandhomme had a torn abdominal.

It might be prudent for the pair to miss out on this match given the nine day delay between the first and the second test. However, now they have recovered from it.

New Zealand pace spearhead Trent Boult and allrounder Colin de Grandhomme have been cleared to tour Australia ahead of the first Test in Perth, on Friday (December 6).

Kane Williamson and Co. recently outclassed England in the two-Test series by 1-0.

New Zealand pacer Trent Boult and all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme, who were both recovering from their respective injuries, have been cleared to make a return to the national side for the three-match Test series against Australia, beginning December 12 at the Optus Stadium in Perth. Since the Test Championship has got underway, New Zealand have performed significantly well in the longer format and are ranked 3rd in the table just below Australia.

The two men are an integral part of the Kiwi projects as they are aiming for a first series in Australia since 1985.

The left-arm new ball specialist has taken 255 scalps at an average of 27.64 and has shone in both pink ball Tests New Zealand have contested. "The pair will travel with the team to Perth tomorrow", New Zealand Cricket (NZC) said on its official Twitter handle.

The duo who were suffering from injuries trained at Mount Maunganui.

De Grandhomme provides important balance to the New Zealand side. Last year, he bowled a world-class spell against England and recorded brilliant figures of 6/32. It was the main reason behind England getting dismissed at a lowly score of 58 in the first innings of the game.

De Grandhomme is a versatile player whose skilled seamstresses have sold 38 wickets to 29, although his bowling is not as suited to Australian tracks. The second Test begins on the Boxing Day at the MCG and the final fixture will be played at the SCG from January 3, 2020.
