Worcestershire CCC 2019 overseas signing Martin Guptill has climbed into the top 10 of the latest ODI rankings released by the ICC.

The County’s Vitality Blast capture has rocketed up 10 places in the past month into ninth spot.

Guptill has amassed 750 points with the help of back to back centuries for New Zealand against Bangladesh.

He has also moved up one position to 13th in the ICC T20I rankings during the same period with 650 points.

Guptill is available for 11 out of 14 Vitality Blast group games this summer PLUS any quarter-final or finals day if the holders Rapids qualify.

His century against Northamptonshire at Wantage Road in the competition last summer off 35 balls was the quickest of the domestic summer.

Guptill is currently a member of the Sunrisers Hyderabad squad in the IPL although he has yet to feature in the competition.

A reminder that it costs just £99 for a 2019 Worcestershire Rapids Vitality Blast Season Pass.

It guarantees entrance to all seven home North Group matches and is a saving of up to £81 compared to purchasing individual match tickets.
