Best and Worst Day of my Cricketing Life – Guptill Looks Back at World Cup Final

New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill posted an emotional tweet as he looked back at the World Cup final against England at Lord's.

“Hard to believe it’s been a week since that incredible Final at Lords. I think it was both the best and worst day of my cricketing life! So many different emotions, but mainly proud to represent New Zealand and play…” said Guptill in a tweet.

He followed that up by thanking his daughter and wife Laura McGoldrick.

Guptill had a disappointing tournament and could only score 186 runs with the bat. However, he was pivotal in the field, effecting MS Dhoni’s run out which helped New Zealand win the semi-final against India.

He was the batsman on strike when New Zealand needed 2 off 1 ball in the super over but he could only muster a single, which meant England won the cup on the total number of boundaries scored.
