The qualification process for the World Test Championship (WTC) final is still a bit of an enigma for Trent Boult but the New Zealand pace spearhead is confident that his team is capable of creating history when it clashes with India for the inaugural title.

The WTC final is scheduled to be held in Southampton from June 18-22.

"The way the group has travelled and performed around New Zealand and the world, the boys are in a great place to hopefully create a bit of history," Boult told reporters at the Bay Oval. "Everything is feeling good with what lies ahead, a big stage for the World Test Championship final, and hopefully I can get over there and be part of that second Test (against England) as well," he added.

"I've taken a while to understand the process with qualifying, how everything works with the points, still think no one knows how that actually works but to get into that final the excitement is ramping up now," Boult said.

Boult, who has snared 281 wickets in 71 Tests, will be unavailable for the first Test as he has opted to spend time with his family after the suspension of the IPL mid-season. (Agencies)
