Martin Guptill has performed 14 One Day Internationals in England, whereby he has scored 652 runs, averaging 54.33, his highest rating being an unbeaten 189 towards England.
New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill has said that he enjoys taking part in in England and expressed his enthusiasm for collaborating within the forthcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales. He attributes his desire for enjoying in England as he finds the circumstances much like that in New Zealand. Guptill has performed 14 One Day Internationals in England, whereby he has scored 652 runs, averaging 54.33, his highest rating being an unbeaten 189 towards England on June 2013.
“I do love playing over there. It’s very similar conditions to home, and you can be at ease over there and you can go out and just chill out when you’re away from cricket,” Martin Guptill was quoted as saying by icc-cricket.com.
“It’s quite a fun place to play cricket, and the fans are great over there as well.”
Martin Guptill was instrumental in serving to New Zealand attain the ultimate of the World Cup 2015, hosted collectively by Australia and New Zealand. He had scored 547 runs in 9 matches at a mean of 68.37 and a strike charge of 104.58.
His greatest rating within the event was an unbeaten 237 off 163 balls towards the Windies. That knock is the second highest rating in ODI historical past and the very best rating in World Cup historical past.
Guptill provides, “I’ve just got to out there and do my thing. If it’s there, I’ll try to hit it; if it’s not, I’ll look to either block it or get off strike. It sounds simple, doesn’t it? But I can tell you it’s not. It’s about working with your partner at the other end – if he’s going, I’ll try to get him on strike, and if I’m going, he’ll try to get me on strike.”
New Zealand will play two warm-up video games earlier than the World Cup – towards India on Could 25, and towards the Windies on Could 28. They may start their World Cup 2019 marketing campaign towards Sri Lanka on June 1 on the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.
