Note: In a career context, all numbers are restricted between 0 and 5. However, in a match context, the numbers are not restricted. For simplicity, we are changing the scale here in the report and expressing every Match Impact number as a percentage. The maximum percentage (100) is assigned to the highest impact player of the match. All other players in the match are scaled relative to him. Negative Match Impact indicates that not only did the player not contribute in the match, but he also had an adverse effect on his team’s chances.​​

Scorecard

New Zealand levelled the five-match One-Day International series 2-2 as the home team cruised to a seven-wicket win over South Africa in Hamilton on Wednesday (1 Mar).

Martin Guptill was the highest impact player and batsman of the match for his unbeaten 138-ball 180 – an innings that saw him score almost 65% of the target by himself.

Guptill’s knock ticked all Batting Impact parameters. He helped himself to the lion’s share as far as proportion of runs scored goes  ( Runs Tally Impact ) and did so at a fast pace ( Strike Rate Impact ), whilst absorbing pressure ( Pressure Impact ), building partnerships ( Partnership-Building Impact ) and ensuring a successful chase ( Chasing Impact ).

Imran Tahir was the highest impact bowler for his two top-middle order wickets in a fairly economical spell (2 for 56 in ten overs).

AB de Villiers finished as South Africa’s highest impact player for his unbeaten 59-ball 72 under pressure.

While four players from each team failed in the match, the visiting team were ambushed by one man – Martin Guptill – who recorded the highest impact batting performance of his ODI career (narrowly edging his heroics against West Indies in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup quarterfinal).
