Free agent Trent Boult continues to star in white ball cricket, named in the ICC’s ODI team of the year.

Trent Boult, Tom Latham and Amelia Kerr are the latest New Zealand cricketers to make the ICC teams of the year.

They were named in the men’s and women’s one-day sides on Wednesday.

That came after Sophie Devine was named captain of the women’s T20 composite team and Glenn Phillips made the men’s T20 side.

England skipper Ben Stokes was named captain of the test team after his exciting leadership under new coach Brendon McCullum.

Boult was a predictable selection in the ODI team as he heads the world rankings in the 50-overs bowling department.

Now a free agent after opting out of his New Zealand Cricket contract, Boult hasn’t played an ODI since last September, missing the current twin tour of Pakistan and India.

Runs and wickets come easily to innovative all-rounder Amelia Kerr.
