You may not have noticed...

a brilliant innings by Martin Guptill in New Zealand for Auckland.

Replying to  the Canterbury innings of 491, Auckland quickly slipped to 42-4, then 72-5 before Guptill and Zimbabwean Colin de Grandhomme (now THAT's a name...) added 211 for the sixth wicket. After Grandhomme's dismissal for 117, Guptill steered the tail to an all out total of 381, ending up on a magnificent career-best unbeaten 195, with 22 fours and 2 sixes after seven and a quarter hours of batting.

The next highest score, astonishingly, was 15....
