Martin Guptill became the first New Zealand batsman and fifth overall in One-Day Internationals to score a double-century during his unbeaten knock of 237 against West Indies in the World Cup quarter-final in Wellington.
Thanks to a scintillating unbeaten half-century from Ravindra Jadeja, India tied the third One-Day International against New Zealand in Auckland, keeping the five-match series alive with two matches to play.
Martin Guptill is a shoo-in for this week's Cricket World Player of the Week award. The 26 year-old from Auckland hit back-to-back match-winning hundreds in the opening two One-Day Internationals against England and has almost single-handedly thrown their ICC Champions Trophy plans into disarray.
New Zealand wicket-keeper BJ Watling has been ruled out of the second and final Test against England which begins at Headingley on Friday with a knee injury.
He picked up the injury during New Zealand's 170-run defeat in the opening match at Lord's and will be replaced - as he was at the home of cricket - as wicket-keeper by captain Brendon McCullum.
Martin Guptill is the outstanding candidate for this week's Cricket World Player of the Week award. The 25-year-old hit three consecutive half-centuries in as many matches against Zimbabwe to make himself a shoo-in for the award.
