Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum was undoubtedly one of the most swashbuckling batsmen during his heydays. On his day, he had the ability to torment any star-studded bowling attack with an audacious display of stroke-making.

Fondly known as ‘Baz’ who achieved a rare feat during his final day of the international career. The former stumper joined Sir Vivian Richards to become the fastest centurion in the longest format of the game. His century of just 56 deliveries against a strong Australian side.

Just like his earlier days, McCullum was at his flamboyant best and smashed the Australian bowlers all around the park. It was enough to prove to his critics and his supporters that McCullum still had the capability of destroying any bowling attack.

Hence, he could have easily played for long. Instead, he decided to call it quits to the cricketing arena on a high.

It was a top class innings to say the least and even the Australian players were awestruck with his batting display. The entertainer of his days congratulated another entertainer from the modern-day generation as he scored a sublime One-day International double century

Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman became the first-ever Pakistani to score a double hundred in the 50-over format. He achieved the feat during the fourth ODI against Zimbabwe at the Queen’s park in Bulawayo.

“@FakharZamanLive What a superb achievement brother,”  Brendon McCullum wrote.
