PROFILE

Capable of producing some truly sublime knocks and equally capable behind the stumps of halting anyone from the opposition daring to attempt the same, Brendon McCullum is one batsman who can change the course of a game. The first ever IPL match, in 2008, between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore was all about McCullum the destroyer, who went on to achieve the highest score recorded in a Twenty20 match. Perhaps, had the organizers known that McCullum would go on to orchestrate a scintillating 158 from 73 balls, they wouldn’t have bothered with the laser show that preceded his innings at the opening ceremony. He also became the second centurion in an international Twenty20 match in 2010, falling one short of Chris Gayle’s 117. Of course, his ability to bludgeon bowling attacks is not limited to the 20-over game: a fifty from 25 balls to chase down Australia’s 331 in an ODI and a crowd-pleasing 93 in the Lord’s Test have shown his prowess in the longer formats. And when detractors pointed out his inability to notch up tons against top teams, he came up with a 115 against India and followed it up with two more centuries, all while donning the wicketkeeping gloves. Having given up the gloves in 2010, if his double century against India in Hyderabad in November 2010 is anything to go by, one can expect more pyrotechnics from his bat.
