AUCKLAND: New Zealand pace spearhead Trent Boult has not trained on day two of New Zealand's camp in Mount Maunganui. As per aESPNcricinfo report, Boult was feeling unwell and stayed away as precaution.

Ross Taylor said he was hopeful the pacer would be fit to go on the third day of the camp, which is going on from July 19 to 24 at Bay Oval with cricketers from the national men's and women's teams based in the North Island.

"I think he's just tired from his eight overs bowling at us yesterday," Taylor joked, adding, "Obviously, with what's going around, you've got to be a bit smart around things like that. Hopefully he's fine and raring to go tomorrow."

New Zealand's bowling coach Shane Jurgensen, who is part of the support staff present at the camp, said the men's camp had been split in two to limit the number of players present.

"Geographically, with the way things are set out, we've got more (players training) on the North Island. We split this camp into two for that reason," he said.

"For now it's a temporary (tented) structure, we've got two nets. The bigger structure will come in next year. We want to make sure we maximise our time with the guys, give them every opportunity over three days, and then we have the second group coming in later in the week." IANS
