Today marks Martin Guptill’s 35th birthday, a perfect excuse to re-live this ridiculous six against South Africa. The maximum went onto the roof of the stadium, flying an enormous 127 metres. It was a shot typical of one of the most destructive white-ball batters of his generation, as pleasant to watch as anyone in the world when in full flow. The New Zealand legend has played 186 One Day Internationals for his country, 102 T20Is and 47 Test matches, plundering over 12,000 international runs.
Happy birthday @Martyguptill!
Can anyone recall seeing a six bigger than this one – 127m against South Africa onto the roof of the Cake Tin! 👀 pic.twitter.com/QH9S4NU9lh
