Black Caps Player Ratings

Liam Napier rates the Black Caps after their crushing World Cup win over Sri Lanka

Martin Guptill: 9

Sharp, diving slip catch summed up his world-class fielding, and a welcome, unbeaten 71 from 51 balls at the top that included eight boundaries and two sixes. Long may the runs continue to flow.

Colin Munro: 8

Not entirely convincing but after a lean recent run his 58 not out from 47 balls is nothing to scoff at. Must now back it up, if retained at the injured Henry Nicholls' expense.

Ross Taylor: N/A

Had a catch stolen
