Guptill blasts New Zealand to eight-wicket win against Pakistan

Martin Guptill,

Martin Guptill was at his belligerent best as New Zealand thrashed Pakistan by eight wickets in Nelson on Tuesday, although captain Kane Williamson admitted a rain delay had done the hosts a favour.

The second one-day international was evenly poised when rain forced the players from the field for more than two hours with New Zealand 64 for two after 14 overs in reply to Pakistan's 246 for nine.

When play resumed under the Duckworth-Lewis system New Zealand's target was revised to 151 in 25 overs meaning they had 11 overs left to make 87.

New Zealand, led by Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson, overhauled Sri Lanka's target of 357 with ease to complete a six-wicket victory in both teams' final warm-up game at Edgbaston.

Guptill smashed 10 fours and five sixes in his 76-ball knock of 116 while Williamson followed that up with a 60-ball 88. Both batsmen subsequently decided to retire out - Guptill in the 29th and Williamson in the 32nd - but by then New Zealand were 101 runs away at a required run rate of less than six.
