New Zealand opening batsman and the well sung hero of the 4th quarter final match, Martin Guptill on Saturday has said that he was amused at the West Indies giant batsman Chris Gayle‘s ‘welcome to the 200 league’ gesture after been successfully able to crack a whirlwinding knock of 237 runs and remaining not out in the match in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2K15 quarter final match here. Guptill managed his way to an unbeaten score of 237 runs from just 163 balls to register his name beside the title of the highest individual score in World Cup history. The right hand batsman and the two fingered toed man helped his side New Zealand beat the West Indies by so much a score of 143 runs on the last Saturday.

Gayle had the highest score in the World Cup by scoring 215 just a few days back against the minnow Zimbabwe in a group stage encounter to enrol the highest individual score in a World Cup match by any cricketer, also becoming the first one to hit a double ton in the world class event of Cricket. Guptill just bettered Chris Gayle’s record with his brilliant knock.

Chris Gayle did come up to me and congratulated me, and said welcome to the league all in gesture. That was rather quite funny. But everyone was pretty congratulatory and just right behind him, Guptill said of the opposition team at an after match media conference.

Guptill said he was not under any due pressure to play big shots and backed himself totally to just play a rather long and tentative innings. From the start of his innings itself, he just wanted to play each ball as it came on his way and he found ease to play to. Once it got down to the last ten overs, it was all about just to have a bit of fun and trials to hit a few boundaries and over boundaries.
