Martin Guptill led New Zealand to a glorious victory against West Indies while blasting highest ever score of 237 in the World Cup history. The Black Caps plundered 393 runs for the loss of six wickets in the allocated 50 overs and bowled out the Windies at 250 with 19.3 overs to spare. It was another one sided game of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 Quarter-Finals and will be remembered by a graceful knock of Guptill. Earlier, South Africa became the first team to qualify for the Semi-Finals when they crushed Sri Lanka by nine wickets. The Islanders were sent back to the pavilion for 133 mere runs in 37.2 overs and the Proteas reached the target by smashing 1-134 with 32 overs still available. The Kiwis will take over the Proteas in the first Semi-Final and will anticipate continuing with their current form while the latter will go all out for the victory.
Martin Guptill hammered unbeaten 237 off just 163 deliveries comprising 11 mighty sixes and 24 sweetly timed fours. The home side feels luxury while enjoying the services of the in-form batsmen, Brendon McCullum, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Grant Elliott and Luke Ronchi. Corey Anderson is their supreme all-rounder while Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Daniel Vettori and Adam Milne are lethal bowlers of the tournament.
Quinton de Kock finally came back to his own and stood firm at his end at 78 against Sri Lanka. Their strong batting line-up is being looked after by Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers, Rilee Rossouw and David Miller whereas Jean-Paul Duminy has always proved his worth as an all-rounder. Imran Tahir has gathered most wickets as a spinner along with Daniel Vettori since both of them have grabbed 15 scalps each. Dale Steyn, Kyle Abbott and Morne Morkel are compatible bowlers and can provide best results on their day.
