What a superb transformation.New Zealand were down and out in their last match but hit back the South African's as hard as they could to win the last ball thriller.They won the match by D/L method due to the flood lights failure but what a performance.Its not easy to make a century in the Twenty20 cricket matches but Guptill's innings was the one to remember.He took his team home making 101 runs and stayed at the crease till the very end.New Zealand has just proved they cannot be taken lightly and has all the firepower to deliver.
