Similar to South Africa, there’s just one New Zealand player in the history of Test cricket who has scored a triple ton, and that man is Brendon McCullum. The former Kiwis skipper scored 302 runs, in 559 balls against India, at Wellington in February 2014.

The hosts batting first could muster up a total of just 192 runs, and India, in reply, scored a humongous 438 runs, courtesy of Ajinkya Rahane’s century.

In the second inning, McCullum’s side stormed to a total of 680 runs, as the captain himself scored 302 in his inning that included 32 boundaries and four sixes. In the end, though, India were able to pull off a draw, but the match will always be remembered for McCullum’s stunning knock.
