New Zealand’s aggressive opening batsman Martin Guptill experienced a torrid time in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament where the right-handed player amassed only 186 runs averaging 20.66. Playing all the 10 games, Guptill managed just one score in excess of 50 which came in New Zealand’s opening game against Sri Lanka.
While fans were found seriously concerned for Guptill, the belligerent striker returned to form in a grand manner. Playing England’s domestic T20 championship called Vitality Blast, the 32-year-old cricketer portrayed his class by smashing a not out 86 consuming only 31 balls. In an innings filled with a plethora of entertainment, Guptill bludgeoned 3 fours and 10 sixes.
This superlative batting effort allowed his team Worcestershire to record a thumping victory as they chased a tough total of 181 inside 13 overs to strengthen their position on the points table. Getting the player of the match award after a horrible time excited the Auckland born to the core as he sits confidently of replicating similar shows in the forthcoming games of the tournament.
