One of the biggest names in New Zealand Cricket Martin Guptill has been a fixture at the top of the order for the BLACKCAPS in the shorter formats since debuting in 2009.
His outstanding form during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 where he was the tournament’s leading run scorer including a highest score of 237 not out saw him also earn a recall to the national test side. Guptill has enjoyed most of his success in the shorter versions of the game averaging a shade under 40 in ODI cricket and over 30 with a 124.38 strike rate in T20 Internationals. ”Guppy’s” success at the highest level has limited his Aces appearances in recent years although his overall record of scoring more than 4,000 runs in over a hundred appearances for Auckland is mightily impressive. A proud product of the Suburbs New Lynn club Guptill still takes every opportunity to turn out for his home club.
