McCullum’s 79 balls onslaught is also the 10th hundred by New Zealand batsmen in less than hundred balls. Among the Test playing countries New Zealand equaled the record of Pakistan’s record of 10 hundred in less than 100 balls. Both New Zealand and Pakistan are at No. 3 now. Among all Test playing nations, Indian batsmen have scored 100 in less than hundred balls for 16 times, the highest in the history.

However, there is a scope that McCullum can cancel his retirement plan if he scores another big innings in the second innings. This is just a speculation given the example of England cricketer Andy Sandham who scored 325 and 50 in his final Test at Kingston in April 1930. After the end of the match, Sandham cancelled his retirement plan. So, now the question is would McCullum do the same or he follows his words?
