Profile
Brash, brutal and brilliant to watch, Brendon McCullum can bruise bowling attacks like few other men in international cricket. A wicketkeeper-batsman, McCullum has been used as an opener in the shorter formats and lower down in Tests, but whenever he arrives at the crease it's impossible to look away. He muscles balls over both sides of the field and was responsible for getting the IPL off to an electrifying start, lighting up the tournament's first match with 158 and showing what the format had to offer.
He also became the second man, after Chris Gayle, to score a Twenty20 international century when he brazenly scooped 155kph offerings from Shaun Tait and Dirk Nannes over the wicketkeeper's head in Christchurch in 2009-10. McCullum describes himself as "brash" and that innings was the proof, but he has also been a key part of New Zealand's Test team since 2004. In the longer format he has generally batted at No. 7 and in his second series, entertained the crowd with 96 at Lord's.
His first two Test centuries came against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe and there were questions over his performances against tougher opponents. Eventually, five years after his Test debut, he raised his bat against one of the top teams with 115 against India in Napier. It kicked off an excellent 12-month period during which McCullum scored three Test centuries and averaged 48.60. A reliable wicketkeeper, McCullum first made the ODI team as a batsman only and in recent times he has expressed a desire to give up the gloves and focus on his batting. Nevertheless, he has the most dismissals of any New Zealand wicketkeeper in ODIs and will overtake Adam Parore's mark of 201 in Tests, if he stays behind the stumps.
