Earlier, cricket word lauded McCullum’s fastest Test century in the first innings of the Christchurch Test. He completed the ton in 54 balls that broke the joint highest record of Misbah-ul-Haq and Vivian Richards. West Indies great Vivian Richards usher praised on him and said, he is a great fan of Brendon McCullum. “I’ve been a great fan of yours for many years.”
McCullum scored 145 off 79 balls in the first innings and 25 in the second innings. His hundred drew accolades from legends like Mahela Jayawardene and Michael Vaughan.
McCullum came to bat at the crease after the fall of three wickets in the first hour of the match. But, he coming at No. 5, played a blitzkrieg innings that was far different innings than any other retiring stars would play, as many struggled in their penultimate international inning.
Great knock by Brendon McCullum on his last test match. Love the way he plays cricket,Simple and to his strength. Well done mate.
