Brendon McCullum. This is not a name. But it is the synonym of a ferocious beast, who has single handedly demolished the best of bowlers. McCullum has taken New Zealand to unparalleled heights, as his leadership combined with his breathtaking batting has been a killer combo.

McCullum became the second person to score a century in T20I cricket after Jamaican heartthrob Chris Gayle. McCullum scored it against Australia at Christchurch in February 2010. It was an innings filled with an array of spellbinding strokes and some serious acrobatic brilliance.

In the due course of his innings, McCullum took acrobatic batting to a new level altogether, as he played the McScoop, his version of the scoop shot played above the wicketkeeper’s head. But what made the fact even more noteworthy was that McCullum played the shots against Shaun Tait, who consistently clocked over 150 km/hr on the speed gun.

McCullum in a flash of a second got across his off stump, almost squatted down completely and then tilted his willow to provide the income delivery with elevation. The pace of the ball did the rest of the job, as it sailed over the boundary for the maximum.

After crossing his ton, McCullum had a ferocious battle with Tait, as he took on the pacer on literally every delivery. Check out the video below of McCullum’s entertaining batting.
