Edit: The bowling conditions were not the greatest in the WI if i remember correctly, but we should get a look at him in one of the tests

Both of these players coming along very nicely..................
And I dare say some of those calling Starc trash earlier in thread might be a little more quiet, he's probably one of the best short format bowlers in the world at present.
No-one was calling Starc trash iirc, they just said he had bowled plenty of trash up to that stage which was true.

To me Boult looks head and shoulders above the rest of the NZ bowlers. Hope he stays fit as he could end up a very very good bowler.
Starc exponentially less likely to spontaneously snap in half mid-pitch for mine.
He's from NZ. No matter the injury history, NZ quicks have a bad end....
TC raises a good point.
Starc's action and body appear more suited to a long career than Boult's. Touch wood, Boult has been pretty good since his almost continuous injuries from 2008 - 2010. Long may it continue and please don't let this be a jinx.
I don't get it. Boult has a nice easy action and is by all accounts the fittest player in the team.
He's slowly putting on muscle and is not as skinny as he was a couple of years ago.
I see no reason to predict injury.
I actually think him being slight is an advantage. Less stress on his joints. Bigger guys are much more likely to get injured IMO.
