2. Martin Guptill (New Zealand):
Martin Guptill is the fourth New Zealand player to find a place in the list. This highlights how much the World Cup finalists have dominated on the batting front, this year. Guptill is the leading run-scorer in ODI cricket in 2015. The 29-year old batter has stroked 1,459 runs at an average of 56 and strike-rate of 96 with 4 centuries and 8 half-centuries against his name. It is notable that almost 1/3rd of his career runs in ODI cricket have come this year. The elegant Kiwi batsman was the highest run-scorer in the World Cup 2015 as well. In the Quarter-Final match of the World Cup, the Kiwi opener had blasted many Kiwi records on his way to 237* runs. Even when the end of the year was around the corner, he bullied the Sri Lankan bowling attack with his astonishing 30 ball 93* run knock which almost neared the record of fastest ton in ODI cricket.
