Martin Guptill Profile

Few players in world cricket play the short-arm pull on one leg with elegance like Martin Guptill. A right-handed top order batsman, Guptill made an immediate impact on the international scene, scoring 122 in a ODI against West Indies, the second-highest score by a debutant. He gained recognition in the 2007-08 season, topping the overall State Shield run-charts with 596 runs at 59.60. His efforts took Auckland to the final, which they eventually lost to Otago. He carried his purple patch into the Emerging Players tournament in Australia, finishing the highest scorer there as well for New Zealand with 280 runs. That earned him a call-up to the A side and then to the ODI and Test squads. He was promoted to open in Tests and it’s a role he’s getting accustomed to. An area he needs to work on is his consistency, given his tendency to throw his wicket away after getting a start. However, he has the gift of timing and on his day, can be a purist’s delight. Guptill’s success is particularly remarkable as he has only two toes on one of his feet as the result of a forklift accident a few years ago.

Fast Facts

* He is the first Kiwi player to have hit a century on ODI debut and his 122 is the record second highest score on debut as of 2010.
