Martin James Guptill (born 30 September 1986) is a New Zealand cricketer and plays for the New Zealand national cricket team as an opening batsman. He is the first cricketer from New Zealand and the fifth in the world to score a double century in a One Day International match. He currently holds the record of highest individual score in World Cup and the second highest score in One Day Internationals of 237* runs.[1] His wife is radio host and Sky Sports sidelines reporter Laura McGoldrick.[2][3]

Early life[edit]

Guptill attended Avondale College and played in the school's 1st XI cricket team. He was also a prefect in his final year.

At the age 13, Guptill was involved in a lawnmower accident and lost three toes.[4] (This fact was revealed to the world by provincial teammate Scott Styris whilst Styris was commentating on Guptill's ODI debut. This has since earned Guptill the nickname "Two Toes" within the Black Caps team).[5] '

International youth cricket[edit]

Guptill first represented New Zealand in the Under-19 Cricket World Cup held in Sri Lanka in 2006.

Domestic cricket[edit]

In domestic cricket, he plays for Auckland Aces (he plays in Auckland's club cricket competition for Suburbs New Lynn). He made his first-class debut in March 2006, scoring a 4-ball duck in the first innings, and 99 in the second. In January 2011 it was announced that Guptill had signed for Derbyshire in England. He was to take over from Australian player Usman Khawaja for the second half of the County Championship & CB40 season and the whole of the T20.[6]

International cricket[edit]

He made his One Day International debut for New Zealand on 10 January 2009 against the West Indies in Auckland, becoming the first New Zealander to score a century on his one-day debut. He reached the landmark with a huge six off the bowling of Chris Gayle. His score of 122 not out is the highest debut score in New Zealand ODI history, and second highest debut score ever in ODIs. He also gained the highest ODI score for a New Zealander against the West Indies and became the first cricketer from his country to carry his bat through a completed innings. He made his Test debut against India in the first Test in Hamilton in March 2009, scoring 14 and 48.

On 14 December 2009, Guptill made his test bowling debut in the second innings of the match against Pakistan in Napier. In his innings, he made two 'caught and bowled' deliveries to Salman Butt and Imran Farhat. At that point, he had 2 wickets for 16 runs.[7] The test ended in a dour draw due to rain, but he ended with 3 for 37 in 13.2 overs, when he trapped Mohammad Asif for lbw after referral for the final wicket of the Pakistani innings.He is one of three players to score 30 runs or more in 5 consecutive t20 innings.

In the 2013 tour of England, Guptill led from his opening position scoring back-to-back undefeated hundreds. At the first ODI at Lord's Cricket Ground, he guided a successful chase scoring 103* with a strike-rate of 83.73, following up with a 189* (strike-rate of 121.93) at the Rosebowl, Southampton in the second game. His 189* was, at the time, was the highest score by a New Zealander in an ODI, and contributed to the fifth-highest team total in ODI history (359). With the innings, he also equalled the record set by Viv Richards for most runs scored in an ODI on English soil.[4]

Guptill surpassed his best of 189, in the 2015 World Cup, scoring an unbeaten 237 off 163 balls, against West Indies, in the quarter-finals on 21 March, at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand. His innings included 11 sixes and 24 fours and the team finished at 6/393, the best total in a World Cup knockout match.[8] It was a remarkable turnaround in form for him, given he went from three ducks in the lead-up matches, to scoring two fifties, a century and the 237 in the quarter finals. Ending the tournament with 547 runs, he emerged as its highest scorer, with his team finishing second to Australia.

On 10 December 2015, Guptill scored his first test century in 4 years against Sri Lanka in Dunedin, in which he scored 7 ODI centuries in that span, and he took 70 innings (32 matches) to score 2000 Test runs, which is the fifth slowest New Zealand batsman to reach that mark (Vettori, Hadlee, Parore, Rutherford and Cairns).

On 28 December 2015, Guptill scored the fastest half century by a New Zealander (17 balls), which is joint second all time, one ball behind AB de Villiers and jointed with Two Sri Lankans Sanath Jayasuriya and Kusal Perera. He ended with 93* against Sri Lanka in a 10 wicket victory, and was voted Man-of-the Match ahead of Matt Henry.[9] Guptill was very brutal throughout the ODI and T20I series as well, where in the second T20I, he briefly scored the fastest fifty by a New Zealander reached 50 with 19 balls, which was later broken by Colin Munro (50 from 14, second fastest all-time). In the same match, he also became the second New Zealander and fourth overall to pass 1,500 T20I runs.
