Martin Guptill Martin Guptill Height: 1.88 m DOB: September 30, 1986

Enigmatic, charismatic and electric. New Zealand's Martin Guptill is a player you would want in white ball cricket. His early life was tragic when at the age of 14, he suffered a forklift accident which resulted in losing three toes on his foot. However, Guptill managed to put aside the tragedies and has come on to become one of New Zealand's best openers. He smashed a century on his ODI debut, the first Kiwi batsman to achieve this feat. His heroics brought him a Test debut in the tour of India. His playing style is as classy as it could get. He scored an unbeaten double ton in the 2011 World Cup, the first Kiwi to do so. Guptill hasn't exactly performed well in red ball cricket than the limited overs. He has three centuries in 47 Tests played and has scored 2586 runs at a strike rate of 46.61. The opener however is a man in T20 cricket as he has played in the Indian Premier League, Big Bash League and Caribbean League as well. Guptill's name is expected to be in t he World Cup squad.
