Trent Boult has walked away from his Black Caps contract.
It is a surprise move from the Black Caps opening bowling but he still wants to play for New Zealand.
New Zealand Cricket has agreed to release Boult so he can spend more time with his young family.
Although he doesn’t have a central contract Boult will still be able to play for the Blackcaps he just won’t play in every tour.
Boult is fourth all-time on the country’s test wicket-takers list with 317 wickets.
After being part of the Blackcaps for 12 years Boult has taken 317 test wickets, 169 at ODI level, and 62 in T20I cricket.
