2. Trent Boult (New Zealand):
The Kiwi pacer, Trent Boult has seen a smooth transition of form from Tests to the 50-overs cricket. The left-arm pacer was able to take wickets on consistent basis throughout the year but it was the World Cup when his magnificence reached a sky high-level. Boult’s swing and accuracy became a perplexing puzzle for many during the World Cup. Boult bagged 22 wickets in the tournament and ended up as the second leading wicket-taker. In 2015, the 26-year-old took 36 wickets in 17 matches at a remarkable economy of 4.44. It was his matchless accuracy that prompted his skipper to set-up a Test match like field when Boult came to bowl with the new ball in the World Cup.
