Early life:

Guptill attended Avondale College and played in the school's 1st XI cricket team. He was also a prefect in his final year. At the age 14, Guptill was involved in a crown forklift truck accident and lost three toes.[1] (This fact was revealed to the world by provincial teammate Scott Styris whilst Styris was commentating on Guptill's ODI debut. This has since earned Guptill the nickname "Two Toes" within the Black Caps team.) When Guptill was in the hospital, his father asked Jeff Crowe if a New Zealand player could visit him. Stephen Fleming, the then New Zealand captain, visited him at the hospital the next day.

International youth cricket:

Guptill first represented New Zealand in the Under-19 Cricket World Cup held in Sri Lanka in 2006.

First class debut:

In domestic cricket, he plays for Auckland Aces (he plays in Auckland's club cricket competition for Suburbs New Lynn). He made his first-class debut in March 2006, scoring a 4-ball duck in the first innings, and 99 in the second. In January 2011 it was announced that Guptill had signed for Derbyshire in England. He was to take over from Australian player Usman Khawaja for the second half of the County Championship & CB40 season and the whole of the T20.

International debuts:

He made his One Day International debut for New Zealand on 10 January 2009 against the West Indies in Auckland, becoming the first New Zealander to score a century on his one-day debut. He reached the landmark with a huge six off the bowling of Chris Gayle. His score of 122 not out is the highest debut score in New Zealand ODI history, and second highest debut score ever in ODIs. He also gained the highest ODI score for a New Zealander against the West Indies and became the first cricketer from his country to carry his bat through a completed innings. He made his Test debut against India in the first Test in Hamilton in March 2009, scoring 14 and 48.
