Brendon McCullum

April 27th, 2008

Brendon McCullum is the New Zealand wicket-keeper. He is an aggressive batsman who also opens in ODIs.

His ability to score fast and the fact that he is also a wicket-keeper has caused many people to draw comparisons with Adam Gilchrist. He was previously captain of the New Zealand under-19 side.

In 2004 he played in a Test series against England and scored what was then his highest score, an innings of 96 at Lord’s. His maiden Test century came several months later when he scored 143 against Bangladesh. He fell just short of his second Test hundred in a game against Sri Lanka but instead scored his second 65 when dismissed one short of his hundred. His second century would later come with a run a ball 111 against Zimbabwe.

He was selected in the 20-man ICC World XI squad for the ICC Super Series in July 2005.

In March 2006, he was charged with bringing the game into disrepute during an ODI against West Indies, but was found not guilty.
