Veteran batter Martin Guptill has joined the likes of pace bowler Trent Boult and all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme to turn his back on the New Zealand Cricket (NZC) central contract in order to pursue playing opportunities elsewhere.

Guptill was released from the playing contract this year, with him now set to seek opportunities in domestic white-ball competitions around the world.Despite the fact that Guptill didn't feature for New Zealand during their Men's T20 World Cup campaign in Australia or in the recently-concluded three-match T20I series against India, the 36-year-old said he is not ready yet to retire from international cricket and is still hopeful of winning selection for his country in the future.

"Playing for my country has been a massive honour, and I'm grateful to everyone within the Black Caps and New Zealand Cricket for their support," he was quoted as saying by ICC."But, equally, I'm realistic enough to understand the need to consider my options in the current circumstances. 

With this release, I'm still available for New Zealand, I have the chance to explore other opportunities, and I also get to spend more time with my family -- which is important."Guptill is currently New Zealand's leading run-scorer in T20I cricket and third-highest in the ODI format and New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said the experienced opener is released from his contract with their blessing.

White emphasised that there would be no guarantees for Guptill in future international selection and that players with central or domestic contracts will now be favoured when selecting sides."We understand Martin's position," White said. 

"He's been a fantastic batsman for us for a long period of time, and we certainly don't wish to stand in his way as he explores other opportunities."Martin's been a giant of the white ball game, a committed and well-respected member of the Black Caps, and has earned the right to play out his career on his own terms. He leaves his contract with our best wishes," added White.
