Martin Guptill is one of the most senior batters in New Zealand batting line-up. The opener was the highest run scorer in the 2015 ODI World Cup. He also scored the second highest individual score in ODIs during the tournament scoring an unbeaten 237 against West Indies. Guptill is presently among the top three run-getters in T20Is with 3497 runs to his name.

But the star cricketer would’ve never imagined achieving such feats after playing the game with just two toes on his left foot. Guptill met a tragic forklift accident and lost three of his toes at the age of 13. Despite his disability, the batter has made a name for himself scoring a plethora of runs in both ODI and T20I formats.
