5 most prolific batting pairs for New Zealand across all 3 formats
#4 Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson
Over the past few seasons, Martin Guptill and star batsman Kane Williamson have been the openers for New Zealand in limited overs cricket. They have been highly successful in both formats of the limited overs game.
While in Test cricket, they have had their fair share of fruitful partnerships as well. Guptill's ultra-attacking batting and Williamson's classic stroke-making has made one of the most prolific pairs in the history of New Zealand cricket.
Due to the fact that they are both top order batsmen, they have been involved in plenty of partnerships in Test cricket as well. Since 2010, they have batted together 108 times and have aggregated 4415 runs in their partnerships till date.
Although they have only recorded 9-century partnerships so far, the Guptill-Williamson pair has brought up as many as 28 half-century partnerships so far.Published 09 Mar 2018, 00:39 IST
