Trent Boult believes Karun Nair is the best Indian batter he has faced

Deadly Trent Boult of the Rajasthan Royals has stated that Karun Nair is the Indian hitter that plays him the best. He believes that his Royals partner can flawlessly confront his deliveries and that he plays him the best during the net session.

Boult has been a productive bowler who has done his job flawlessly – whether in the early stages of the game or towards the end. His numbers speak for themselves. In terms of his performance in India’s top event, he has 84 wickets in 70 games played thus far.

Boult and Nair are set to be part of the RR franchise in IPL 2022 after the former was released by Mumbai Indians and the latter by KKR. In terms of RR’s campaign thus far, they have been moving in more than decent form. The 2008 IPL winners have won six of the nine games they have played so far and are presently third in the IPL 2022 points standings, trailing only the Gujarat Titans and the Lucknow Super Giants.

Speaking about Nair’s most notable performance, at the age of 25, he hammered a triple century in his third Test in Chennai, scoring 303*, becoming only the second Indian player to do so after Virender Sehwag. Nair was released by Kolkata Knight Riders ahead of the IPL 2022 auction and was signed by Rajasthan Royals for INR 1.40CR.
