Wellington: New Zealand opener Martin Guptill has urged his side to continue their brilliant performance if they are to seal the three-match ODI series against South Africa. New Zealand levelled the three-match ODI series by a commanding eight-wicket win over South Africa in their second ODI in Potchefstroom. The 28-year-old said that the tourists need to put aspects of both games together and play the complete game if they want to win. “We want to win it obviously,” Guptill was quoted as saying by stuff.co.nz in when asked about the third ODI.

“If we can try and put aspects of both games together and play the complete game, it’s going to be a good game for us. “But we will have to be on our toes again. It will be a completely different wicket to what we had today. We will have to adapt. And we will have to play very well to win. South Africa are a very good side.” ALSO READ: Martin Guptill’s ton leads New Zealand to 8-wicket victory in 2nd ODI against South Africa

Guptill, who smacked an unbeaten 103 to steer home to victory, insisted that his side have to be quick-witted and would continue to play well to claim victory over the hosts.
