Despite half-centuries from skipper Kane Williamson (67 off 95 balls) and veteran Ross Taylor (67 not out off 85 balls), the Black Caps could not force the pace against tournament's best bowling attack.
Speaking during the rain interruption in India's World Cup 2019 semifinal clash against New Zealand on Star Sports' Cricket Live Show, the 47-year-old joked that there were "too many gentlemen" in his team. They were 211/5 in 46.1 overs when rain interrupted the match.
He was thrust into action nearly immediately after India were invited to field on a ground where the side that has batted first in five previous matches in this tournament went on to win.
Ravindra Jadeja, preferred ahead of Kuldeep Yadav, was economical, as was Jasprit Bumrah, whose probing lines and changes of pace meant he conceded only 25 runs from his eight overs. India topped the league stage, while the Kiwis ended fourth.
Guptill was therefore spared a third golden duck of the tournament but the out-of-form opener would not last, contributing one off 14 balls before prodding at Bumrah and edging to Kohli at second slip.

Once the spinners came on there was more turn than expected and New Zealand continued to find it hard to score.
Williamson looked compact in his defence along with the edgy Henry Nicholls (28 off 51 balls) during their 68-run second wicket stand.
New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat on Tuesday.
It would have been an unlucky, and potentially unfair, DLS adjustment for India to deal with, and former Indian player Murali Kartik believed that India wouldn't have been keen on the chase under lights at Old Trafford. "To come back tomorrow, they will finish the game, it's the fair way to do it, and I think it makes India the favourites coming into tomorrow", he said on Cricinfo.
The victor will play England or Australia in final at 9.30pm Sunday.
