Following their emphatic win over India in Hamilton, New Zealand opener Martin Guptill has stated that his team will once again came out with a positive frame of mind against the Men in Blue in the second ODI to be played at the Eden Park on Saturday.
New Zealand chased down a stiff 348-run target on Wednesday at Seddon Park and registered the first win in their last eight international matches. Guptill made 32 in an opening partnership of 85 with Henry Nicholls as Ross Taylor’s brilliant hundred to help Black Caps take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
“We want to be as positive as possible. Once we get out there tomorrow, we will see how we go. If being positive means you losing two wickets early, so be it. My role does not change in the team, my role is to provide the team a quick start,” Guptill told reporters on Friday.
