World Twenty20 - Martin Guptill

New Zealand's Martin Guptill

Team: New Zealand

A second-ball duck against Australia in February was not the ideal start to Martin Guptill's international Twenty20 career.

But just a month before, the 22-year-old created history when he became the first Kiwi to score a one-day century on his debut against the West Indies.

His 122 not out remains the second highest score by a one-day debutant.

A powerfully built batsman, Guptill can clear the ropes with consummate ease and is equally adept opening the batting or at three.
