I can't tell you what he said: Guptill reaction raises laugh from Taylor

Martin Guptill copped a stunning delivery from Billy Stanlake first up in Sydney. "I can't tell you what he said," giggled Ross Taylor.

New Zealand endured misery in the first game of their Twenty20 tri-series with Australia and England, but Ross Taylor was able to raise a smile in the post-match news conference.

The Black Caps were limited to a paltry total of 117-9 at the Sydney Cricket Ground as Billy Stanlake (3-15) and Andrew Tye (4-23) excelled, before Australia raced to a rain-revised target of 95 with seven wickets in hand.

Tall seamer Stanlake produced a magic ball to dismiss Martin Guptill for a golden duck, hitting the top of the batsman's off stump to claim his second wicket in as many balls.

Asked for his team-mate's reaction to the delivery, a laughing Taylor indicated Guptill's comments were not suitable for a family audience.

"I can't really tell you what he really said," Taylor stated.

"It was a very good ball. I'd like to tell you, but I can't."

Australia face England in the series' next two contests, on Wednesday and Sunday, before Eoin Morgan's side meet the Black Caps in Wellington on February 13.
