East London, South Africa, Dec 24 : Martin Guptill returned from illness to hit a four off the last ball and claim a brilliant match-winning century and series-leveling victory for New Zealand in the second of three Twenty20s against South Africa on Sunday.



With Guptill on 97, New Zealand needed four off the last ball to win and the opener scooped a low full toss from Rory Kleinveldt over the cover fielders and to the rope for a dramatic victory.

Having recovered from a stomach complaint that kept him out of New Zealand's heavy loss in the first game, Guptill clobbered six sixes in his 101 not out from 69 balls to better South Africa's challenging 165-5 and earn the Black Caps an eight-wicket win at Buffalo Park.
