New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult was released from his central contract with New Zealand Cricket board after requesting on Wednesday so he can spend less time traveling and more time at home with his family. “Ultimately this decision is about my wife Gert and our three young boys. The family has always been the biggest motivator for me and I feel comfortable with putting it first and preparing ourselves for life after cricket”, Boult said.

Nick Kyrgios won the match by 6-4 6-4 over Sebastian Baez at the Canadian Open on Tuesday to set up a second-round showdown with world number one Daniil Medvedev.

“Medvedev is coming from a title too and he is the number one in the world, It’s not like the rankings mean too much as the guy I played today is ranked ahead of me. But Medvedev is a machine”, Kyrgios said.
