New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson on Friday expressed his happiness after clinching an ODI series win against Bangladesh at home.

Williamson had some special praise for Kiwi opener Martin Guptill who scored consecutive tons and led hosts to victory in first two matches.

“Today, and in the last game, there were a couple of nice performances, obviously led by Martin Guptill,” Williamson told the media.

“He was brilliant, dominant, certainly in this game in terms of taking the momentum from the previous game. The number of back-to-back hundreds he scores is freakish.”

This is not the first time, Guptill has earlier scored two consecutive hundred twice [WC 2015 and 2013 (against England)]

Guptill has now 16 ODI centuries in ODIs, only 4 less than 20 of Ross Taylor (most by a New Zealander).

Williamson also lauded his bowlers. “I thought the lads in the first half with the ball were outstanding.”

“There was a little bit there for us with the overcast conditions, and we did get a bit out of the surface. (It) allowed us to take regular wickets, which is important,” he added.
