PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Martin Guptill

Guptill: “It’s always nice to score runs and I love batting here at the Eden Park.”

McCullum: “It was a pretty good performance”

Smith: “We have to move on quickly. Obviously it’s a three-match series. I thought we pulled it back quite well with the ball. 300 was about par on this sort of a ground, but we lost too many wickets upfront. You are going to win too many games if you lose 6 wickets that early.”
