Lahore: Martin Guptill is still upset over the cancellation of his tour of Pakistan.
The canceled tour of Pakistan last month was an opportunity for Martin Guptill to come back but not a single match, the senior batsman said in a virtual media conference that the absence of the series was disappointing for everyone involved, including me, we all I was looking forward to playing cricket and doing well before the World Cup, but it was not possible. I know Pakistanis were really looking forward to the return of the game to the country, we are all hopeful that cricket will resume there soon.
New Zealand’s first match in the World Cup will be against Pakistan on October 26. In this regard, Martin Guptill said that the Green Shirts are a tough opponent, there will be a lively competition in the conditions of the UAE. We have to keep up, we are looking forward to this competition and will enter the field with good preparation.
The Kiwi cricketer, who is participating in the second phase of the PSL, said that the pitches were very good at that time, he has seen some big scores in the IPL, now the pitches seem to be used a lot, so there could be a low scoring tournament. The final assessment of the situation will be made only after entering the field and reviewing the conditions.
“I have come a long way in my career, the T20 World Cup will be my 12th ICC tournament, the opportunity to represent the country is a great honor, I will do my best to perform well in the mega event,” said Martin Guptill.
