Boult keen to make test team

2:37 pm on 30 December 2012

The New Zealand bowler Trent Boult says selection for the first cricket against South Africa starting this week is no certainty.

Boult took two wickets as New Zealand fought back late on the second day of their three day warm-up game against a South African invitational side at Boland Park.

Bruce Martin also took two wickets while Chris Martin and Neil Wagner took a wicket apiece as the home side finished 274 for six in reply to New Zealand's 311 for six declared.

Boult says he's keen to bowl again on the final day to push his test selection chances.
