Star batsman of New Zealand, Martin Guptill who plays as the opening batsman for them in all formats of the game holds the record of World Cup's highest individual score. He made the highest score in World Cup history with 237 not out against West Indies that helped his team send into the semi-finals.
His 163-ball smashing innings in Wellington featured 11 sixes and 24 fours. The right-hander began his remarkable innings by driving the first ball of the innings for four and after reaching his century he hit six after six over the leg-side boundary. He went berserk to hit 137 runs from his last 52 balls.
One of his huge sixes during this innings went out of the ground and landed on the roof of the "Cake Tin" stadium. Guptill's score is the second best in one-day international history behind India's hit-man Rohit Sharma's 264.
