Brendon McCullum's highest Test score is 302. He made it against India. McCullum came in to bat when the Kiwis were 52/3, nearly 200 runs behind. The match appeared lost. McCullum was dismissed when the Kiwis were 625/7, over 400 runs ahead. Match saved, series sealed.
An unlikely knock from McCullum: he battled 559 deliveries, for nearly 13 hours. There was always more to Baz than met the eye. He was much more than a limited overs' superman, if only he knew. But then, he wouldn't have been quite himself. Brendon McCullum, an altogether different cricketing equation, one which won't be solved in a hurry. Thanks for the action, mate. Fly away.
