Martin Guptill keen to move forward from World Cup heartbreak

The recently concluded edition of the World Cup in England and Wales arguably unleashed the best tournament final till date. In a gripping contest, hosts England shared an epic battle against New Zealand to register their first-ever 50-over World Cup triumph.

Amid all the umpiring errors and seesaw moments, many New Zealanders were left heartbroken as Kiwis looked good to win their maiden ODI World Cup. 

New Zealand’s star batsman Martin Guptill once again looked back at the contest as he reiterated that he wants to move on and forthcoming T20Is against Sri Lanka could be an ideal opportunity. 

With T20 World Cup not being far away, the Auckland born player is eager to be in top form for this format of the game.

The 32-year old was found in a horrific form in the 10-team tournament with which he also failed to score 2 runs of the last ball, thus giving England World Cup glory at home. 

However, Guptill announced his return to form in Vitality T20 Blast as the aggressive batsman mustered 259 runs across 9 innings to secure a decent average of 32.37.
