IPL-8: It's difficult to tackle Trent Boult, says Wriddhiman Saha
Mohali: Kings XI Punjab wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha on Tuesday said it was difficult to predict Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Trent Boult.
Sunrisers beat Kings XI by 20 runs here on Monday.
Boult was exceptional in his four overs returning with figures of 3-19 and made sure the Kings were put on a tight leash chasing 151-6.
"He bowls a good yorker and has good pace too. You can't predict whether he is going to bowl the yorker or something else.
I was thinking he would bowl a yorker as he had done earlier but then it didn't happen (as I thought and got out to a miscued shot)," Saha was quoted as saying by iplt20.com.

With a gutsy 33-ball 42, Saha took the fight to the Sunrisers. Coming in to bat at 53-4 in pursuit of 151, he built a 44-run stand with Axar Patel to create a few nervous moments for the visitors.
Boult said he was still learning and it felt nice to get a reward for his efforts.
