Brendon McCullum

Widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen ever to play for New Zealand, Brendon McCullum was one who bruised and maimed bowling attacks throughout his career. His consistency in all three formats of the game is something that few have been able to parallel. McCullum made his debut in 2002 against Australia. He has since become the second player to score a century in a T20 international and the only Kiwi to score a triple hundred in Tests, single-handedly taking the game away from India. As wicketkeeper, he was clinical behind the stumps. It was a role that he shunned when he was made captain in all formats in 2012 despite Adam Parore's record 201 dismissals being within his reach. His captaincy is regarded as the main reason behind New Zealand's recent success in the longest format of the game. The Blackcaps went 13 Tests unbeaten at home and also reached the 2015 World Cup finals under him. At the end of 2015, McCullum announced that the home Test series against Australia would be his last international fixtures. He became the first player to play 100 consecutive Tests from his debut.
