Record-breaking Guptill hits 189 not out vs England
Martin Guptill made the highest one-day international score by a New Zealand batsman as the Black Caps took an unbeatable 2-0 lead in their series with England yesterday
Guptill’s 189 not out was the cornerstone of New Zealand’s 359 for three at Southampton — the largest total England had conceded in a home ODI. England, despite Jonathan Trott’s unbeaten 109, could only manage 273 in reply as they lost by 86 runs, with 35 balls of their innings left, as New Zealand gained a measure of revenge for their 2-0 Test series whitewash by Alastair Cook’s men. This defeat raised questions about hosts England’s prospects in the Champions Trophy.
