Boult to head home due to injury
New Zealand pace bowler Trent Boult is out of the team’s tour of England and will return to home for treatment on a “stress-related injury to his back”, it was announced on Sunday. 

The injury was revealed when the left-armer, who had been in devastating form for the Black Caps recently, was not included in the playing XI for the third One-Day international (ODI) against England being played in Southampton on Sunday night. “Trent Boult was ruled out of the match and the remainder of the England Tour with a <g data-gr-id="13">stress related</g> injury to his back. Boult will return home tomorrow (Monday) for further assessment,” New Zealand cricket said in a statement.
Boult, 25, was replaced in the side by <g data-gr-id="10">Henry,</g> while Ben Wheeler made his debut as the 185th New Zealander to play one-day cricket.
