Guptill keen to repay faith after Test selection

7:26 am on 15 March 2009

The New Zealand cricketer Martin Guptill is hoping he can justify his inclusion in the team for the first Test against India next week.

Guptill has been called into the Test side for the first time on the strength of recent one day form for the Blackcaps.

He says he's feeling pretty confident about the way he's striking the ball at the moment and hopes it can continue in the Tests.
