New Zealand opening batsman Martin Guptill pulled off one of the best run outs you’ll ever see in last night’s shock win over India in the World Cup semi-final.
With the 25 needed off 10 balls and the fielders deep, Indian keeper MS Dhoni paddled a short ball to square leg and took off for two.
Guptill stormed in from deep backward square and hit the stumps with a searing throw that caught Dhoni — who didn’t dive — short.
WATCH IT HERE:
Almost as good is the reaction from Richard Kettleborough as he sends it upstairs:
The Kiwis — who looked like they hadn’t made enough with their 8/239 — went on to win by 18 runs after bowling out India for 221.
They will take on either Australia or England who play tonight.
