Guptil may be rested tonight

6:05 am on 14 February 2012

The inform New Zealand bastman Martin Guptil could well be rested for tonight's second and final Twenty20 cricket international against Zimbabwe in Hamilton.

Guptil has dominated the tourists during their tour and spent a long time at the crease and so a rest could be on the cards ahead of the series against South Africa.

That could mean Colin de Grandhomme may be promoted up the order.

Tonight's match will be the last chance for the Zimbabweans to show some fight, with the locals probably already looking to the series against the Proteas.
