What a way to say farewell to test cricket. Brendon McCullum hits the fastest Test Century on his final test match during day one of New Zealand vs Australia 2nd test match being played at Christchurch. Brendon McCullum hit his century off just 54 balls, breaking the record previously held by Pakistan’s Misbah-ul-Haq. He also broke the record of most sixes in a test innings held by former Australian batsman Adam Gilchrist.
McCullum is playing his last test match and seems like he had a plan to say farewell to his exceptional career in his own style. Though he was dismissed on 39, thanks to a great catch by by Mitch Marsh, but reply showed James Pattison was stepping ahead of the front line. McCullum never looked back after this new opportunity and got out on 145 after the new world record knock. His innings included 21 fours and 6 sixes.
Earlier when he came to bat at #3, he received a guard on honor reception from the Australian players. He will retire after this match.
Brendon McCullum has a glorious test career with 101 matches for New Zealand. He has scored 12 centuries and 31 fifties including a 302, which remains the top score by any New Zealand batsman in test cricket.
He has been a great entertainer throughout his career, something his final match gives proof of.
