Daily Mail UK – Twenty20 cricket is a funny old game, Martin Guptill says – one night you’re fizzing – the next you’re off the pace.

Summary

  • Twenty20 cricket is a funny old game, Martin Guptill says – one night you’re fizzing – the next you’re off the pace.
  • This is why the big-hitting opener isn’t placing too much stock in his New Zealand’s loss to Australia in Sydney or Tuesday’s home victory over England.
  • The Black Caps face Australia again on Friday, knowing a victory at Eden Park will guarantee them a spot in the T20 tri-series final.
  • “To be fair, I don’t know if the records count for much anymore – any team who plays well on the day is going to win,” Guptill told reporters.
  • Guptill hit a solid 65 on Tuesday against England, forming a second-wicket partnership with Kane Williamson to guide his side to a 12-run win.
