On 22 December 2015, McCullum announced he would retire from international cricket at the end of the southern summer, joining his brother who had earlier that year announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. He is also the highest (170) runs scorer by the captain in his farewell test and first captain to score a century in his farewell test.[12][13] He retired from all international cricket on 24 February 2016.

batting records. He scored the fastest LA hundred off 52 balls, including 14 fours and 5 sixes. With 170 runs in the match, McCullum scored the highest score by any player in a domestic one-day match (Shell or State competitions) overtaking Blair Hartland's previous record. McCullum played for Glamorgan in 2006 and he scored 160 opening the batting against Leicestershire in the County Championship. On 24 January 2009, he lined up for New South Wales
New South Wales
in the final of Australia's KFC Twenty20
Twenty20
Big Bash. This was an exercise to allow him to be eligible to play for them in the Twenty20
Twenty20
Champions League. This sparked criticism however despite opinion States are permitted to have one overseas player in their squad. McCullum also donated his match fee from the game to Otago

Junior Cricket. On 16 January 2010 during the 2009-10 HRV Cup, vs Auckland Aces

Volts to victory with three balls to spare. McCullum reached his 50 off 32 deliveries and his century off 65 deliveries. Following his announcement to retire from international cricket in 2015, he signed with Middlesex for NatWest T20 Blast. His commitment would be for half a season after his stint at IPL, and may return for the Royal London One-Day Cup, provided that Middlesex qualifies for the playoffs.[14] In September 2016 he signed with the Lahore Qalandars

for the 2017 season of the Pakistan Super League

and will be the team's captain.[15] He also played in the inaugural Indian Premier League
Indian Premier League
tournament in 2008 to Kolkata Knight Riders. On 18 April 2008 in the first ever IPL match, he achieved the highest Twenty20
Twenty20
individual score in an innings.[16] This eclipsed the previous record mark of 141, held by Australian Cameron White. Coincidentally, McCullum faced an over from White during the match and scored 24 from it; it was White's only over in that match.[17] This record was eventually broken by Chris Gayle when he piled on 175 runs in IPL 2013. In the same match he also claimed the record for most sixes (13) in a Twenty20
Twenty20
innings,[18] which was later surpassed by Englishman Graham Napier
Graham Napier
(16). He was bought by Kochi Tuskers Kerala

in the 2011 IPL auctions. He returned to the Knight Riders in 2012. In the 2014 IPL auctions, McCullum was bought by Chennai Super Kings. He was given the role of opening the innings along with West Indian Dwayne Smith
Dwayne Smith
and the pair was considered as the most dangerous opening pair in the league's history. In 2018 he was released by chennai and bought by bangalore in 2018.He currently plays for the Royal Challengers Bangalore

in the IPL franchise. As well as that he hs made five appearances for Hibiscus Coast Cricket Club of Orewa

, New Zealand. International career[edit] See also: List of centuries in Twenty20 International
Twenty20 International
cricket Early days[edit] 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
Sri Lanka
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. On 20 February 2007, he scored 86 not out as New Zealand went on to be the first team to whitewash Australia in a three-match ODI series since 1997. During the innings he partnered with Craig McMillan
Craig McMillan
to score 165, equalling the world record for a 6th wicket partnership.[19] On 31 December 2007 he scored 50 from just 19 balls against Bangladesh. He finished his innings with 80 runs from only 28 balls, including 9 fours and 6 sixes with a strike rate of 285.71. On 22 December 2015, McCullum announced his intention to retire from International cricket
International cricket
at the end of the southern summer in his home test against Australia, rather than after the 2016 ICC World Twenty20. He played his last ODI match against Australia on 8 February 2016 in which he scored 47 off 27 and New Zealand
New Zealand
beat Australia by 55 runs thereby winning the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy
Chappell-Hadlee Trophy
2–1. On 22 February 2016, McCullum played his last innings in a Test Match against Australia. He scored 25 off 27, when he was dismissed by Josh Hazlewood one ball after hitting him for a 6. McCullum was given a guard of honour upon entry onto the field, and was given a standing ovation once dismissed. Brendon McCullum
Brendon McCullum
on his retirement said that the time was right to quit international cricket and said that he hopefully left and brought some fun and enjoyment and some real culture back into the set-up in the time that he had as captain.[20] Record breaking[edit] On 5 April 2009, on day three of the third Test match during India's tour of New Zealand, he displayed an amazing level of alertness in the dismissal of Rahul Dravid. Dravid attempted a sweep shot off Daniel Vettori's bowling, but McCullum saw what Dravid was up to before the ball had even pitched and moved swiftly to his left (Dravid's leg side). Ross Taylor
Ross Taylor
at first slip did the same. The ball came nicely off Dravid's bat, but flew straight into the hands of a waiting Brendon McCullum.[21] A couple of balls earlier, McCullum tried the same thing, but he had been a little slow and Dravid's sweep was kept low. Although there has been some discussion regarding the legality of McCullum's movement before the ball had even pitched, the laws of cricket indicate he was well within his right to do so.[22] On 6 November 2009, against Pakistan at Abu Dhabi, McCullum scored his second ODI century of 131 to elevate New Zealand
New Zealand
to 303 and win the match to level the series.[23] On 16 February 2010, during the only Test match against Bangladesh, he scored 185, which is the highest score ever by a New Zealand
New Zealand
wicket-keeper in Test cricket. He was also involved in the record highest sixth-wicket partnership for New Zealand of 339 runs with Martin Guptill, missing out on the world record by just 12 runs. On 27 February 2010, McCullum became the second player to score a T20I hundred, finishing 116 not out, one run short of Chris Gayle's record of 117. On 4 May 2010 McCullum became the first player to score 1,000 T20 international runs. He achieved this feat playing against Zimbabwe in the 2010 ICC World Twenty20
Twenty20
at Guyana. On 28 June 2010, McCullum announced that he will not keep wicket for New Zealand
New Zealand
in Test matches. He, however informed that he will still keep in 50-overs & T20 over games.[24] He did a fine job in his first innings since handing over the Wicket-keeping duties he scored 65 runs and was engaged in a 104 run partnership with Ross Taylor
Ross Taylor
he was promoted to the position of opener in tests rather than his usual number 5 position. McCullum did however have experience of opening the innings because he opens for New Zealand
New Zealand
in limited-overs cricket.[25] On 21 September 2012 at the 2012 ICC World Twenty20
Twenty20
tournament in Sri Lanka, McCullum scored 123 runs against Bangladesh
Bangladesh
at Pallekele, setting a new record for the highest Twenty20 International
Twenty20 International
innings, and becoming the first player to score two Twenty20
Twenty20
International centuries. This record was broken by Aaron Finch
Aaron Finch
against England, when he scored 156. However McCullum is one of the two players to have scored two Twenty20 International
Twenty20 International
centuries along with West Indian Chris Gayle. Captaincy[edit] In 2014 at the Basin Reserve
Basin Reserve
in Wellington, McCullum scored 302 runs in the third innings of the second test against India, becoming the first New Zealand
New Zealand
batsman to score a triple-century. He shared a 352 run partnership with BJ Watling, then a record sixth wicket stand,[26] rescuing New Zealand
New Zealand
from a likely innings defeat. McCullum closed the innings at 680/8d, both the highest ever innings by New Zealand, and the highest ever third innings in Test cricket
Test cricket
history.[26][27] On 21 November 2014, McCullum took his first ever wicket at test level, a caught-and-bowled of Pakistan's Sarfraz Ahmed during their second test. On 29 November 2014, McCullum scored a century on day 2 of the third test against the same opposition, in which both teams decided to call off play on the day before as a tribute to Phillip Hughes, and hand-written P.H. under each player's squad number as a further mark of respect. He was bowled out on 202 after hitting ten sixes in his innings, by far a record for New Zealand
New Zealand
opening batsman.[28] Two years after his debut as NZ captain, in which the team was bowled out for a paltry 45, Black Caps returned to respectability. On 13 December 2014, McCullum was named New Zealander of the Year
New Zealander of the Year
by the New Zealand
New Zealand
Herald beating out stiff competition from Lane Pilkington due to his continued co-operation with ICC over the match-fixing scandal which resulted in Chris Cairns
Chris Cairns
being charged for lying to court, and also for changing the perception of the Black Caps as easy-beats.[29][30] On the first day of the Boxing Day Test at Hagley Oval, McCullum scored 195 in the first innings against Sri Lanka, which gave him 1000 test runs in a calendar year, becoming the first New Zealander to reach this milestone (1164 at the end of the match, with Kane Williamson at 929),[31] and the fastest test century (in 74 balls), beating his own record against Pakistan in Sharjah.[32] He fell 5 runs shy of his 4th 200+ scores in a calendar year. His 33 sixes in test cricket in a single calendar year is also a world record.[32] It is also worth noting that New Zealand
New Zealand
only played 9 test matches in 2014.[32] He also helped to push New Zealand
New Zealand
to score 429/7 on day one, the most runs New Zealand
New Zealand
had ever scored in a single day of play in test cricket.[32] It ended with an 8-wicket win, which made it 5 test wins out of 9 in 2014, the most wins in a calendar year. He also closed the year with a triple century and two double centuries, the third person to do so after Donald Bradman
Donald Bradman
and Michael Clarke. On 3 January 2015 McCullum returned to Basin Reserve, where he scored his triple century against India. While he got a 2-ball duck on a green pitch and three errors as a fielder, he was given a key to Wellington, a symbolic equivalent of "Honorary Citizen", in recognition of his heroics the previous year, becoming the third person to receive the honour after Wellington-born Sir Peter Jackson and Sir Richard Taylor, who were recognised by the city for their work on the Lord of The Rings
Lord of The Rings
movies.[33] Late career[edit] McCullum also led New Zealand
New Zealand
in 2015 Cricket World Cup, which was co-hosted by New Zealand
New Zealand
and Australia. On 20 February 2015, in New Zealand's third Pool A match against England, McCullum scored 77 runs off 25 balls, recording the fastest 50 in World Cup history (51 runs off 18 balls) and the 4th fastest fifty of all time. McCullum led the New Zealand
New Zealand
team to their first World Cup final, scoring timely innings in the pool match against Australia and South Africa in the semi-final. The semi-final victory was New Zealand's first after six semi-final losses in the past. In the final against Australia, McCullum was bowled for a duck in just the first over of the match by Mitchell Starc, as New Zealand
New Zealand
went on to lose to Australia by 7 wickets. On 21 May 2015, McCullum started in his 93rd consecutive test, and batted in his preferred spot at no. 5. On 13 December 2015, on McCullum's 98th consecutive test start, he scored his 100th six hit in test cricket, tying the record by Adam Gilchrist. On 12 February 2016, McCullum started his 100th consecutive test, but was dismissed in both innings by Mitchell Marsh, making Marsh the second person since Jason Gillespie to dismiss him on both innings of 2 test matches. On 20 February 2016, in his final test in his adopted home of Christchurch, becoming the only member left from the last Trans-Tasman test in Christchurch
Christchurch
in the pre-earthquake AMI Stadium. The third day of the test was the 5th anniversary of the 2011 Christchurch earthquake. He hit his 102nd career six to surpass Adam Gilchrist
Adam Gilchrist
as the most prolific six-hitter in test cricket. He went on to score a century off 54 balls, beating joint record by West Indian Viv Richard and Pakistani Misbah-ul-Haq's record for the fastest test century by 2 balls.[34] He also became the second player since Jason Gillespie
Jason Gillespie
to score a hundred or more in his final test. McCullum also recorded the highest (170) runs scorer by the captain in farewell test and 1st captain to score a ton in farewell test.[12][13] He also took four catches as a fielder at first slip, deputising for the injured Ross Taylor. Playing style[edit] McCullum originally played in the side as a wicketkeeper-batsman. His glove work improved during his tenure as the New Zealand
New Zealand
wicketkeeper. His batting is good enough to earn him selection for the Black Caps alone, shown by the occasions on which he has been unable to keep but has still been selected as a batsman.[35] He opens the batting for New Zealand in ODIs with steadily improving success. He is an aggressive batsman who is particularly strong over extra cover, often lofting the ball into the stands, and also square-cutting, or square-driving the ball. He is also adept at using the scoop shot, even using it at tests, so much so that McScoop was named after him. In 2010 McCullum hung up the gloves In Test cricket
Test cricket
due to continued body strain and became a specialist batsmen in Test cricket, opening the innings in his first match as a specialist batsmen against India
India
in Ahmedabad. He was described as a player "especially suited to Twenty20
Twenty20
cricket" when he signed for a five-week stint at Glamorgan in June 2006.[36] The stint included the entire domestic 2006 Twenty20
Twenty20
Cup. He was signed up by the Kolkata Knight Riders
Kolkata Knight Riders
of the IPL for $700,000. His contract with the IPL was for three years. In 2016, he was signed by the replacement/expansion team Gujarat Lions
Gujarat Lions
for US$1.1 million, making him the highest paid overseas player in the team's foundation squad. He has the ability to play the Dilscoop
Dilscoop
(which was invented by Sri Lankan Tillakaratne Dilshan
Tillakaratne Dilshan
or precisely the ramp shot, which involves the batsman squatting down and scooping deliveries back over the wicketkeeper's area. The two shots has its own distinction, where Dilscoop
Dilscoop
is played right above the wicket-keeper's head, but ramp shot can be played in sideways of the wicket-keeper as well. Playing this ramp shot in a Twenty20 International
Twenty20 International
match on 28 February 2010 in Lancaster Park, against Australia, he managed to hit Shaun Tait
Shaun Tait
for two sixes in an over back over Brad Haddin's head, forcing Australia to set a back stop (the fielder near the boundary behind the wicketkeeper or first slip) in his final test match. He can also execute reverse sweep well. He also likes to cut, cover drive, or advance the wicket to punch the ball up for boundaries from a batting stance standing on or outside leg stump. During the Twenty20
Twenty20
World Championship in 2009, the wicketkeeping duties was given to Peter McGlashan. He was seen practicing his medium bowling. McCullum had to decide whether to play for New South Wales, KKR, or Otago
Otago
in the 1st edition of the Champions League Twenty20. Since KKR did not qualify, he had only to consider playing for either New South Wales
New South Wales
or Otago; eventually he had decided to play for Otago alongside brother Nathan McCullum.[37] In 2012, BJ Watling
BJ Watling
became McCullum's replacement as wicketkeeper in Tests, but due to Luke Ronchi's struggles in ODIs, McCullum still remained as wicketkeeper in ODIs and T20s. But by late 2013, McCullum's recurring back problems meant he can no longer perform wicketkeeping duties effectively, he gave up his gloves to Ronchi in ODIs and T20s, and McCullum became a middle order batsman, or as a cover for opening the batting in tests, having batted at 1,2,5–7 in his career, while his fielding position becomes predominantly mid-off, mid-on or mid-wicket,[38] and in his final international matches, he ended at first slip after the injury to Ross Taylor. He is also a very seldomly-used part-time medium pace bowler in tests. He got his first wicket in all forms of international cricket from a caught-and-bowled against Sarfraz Ahmed of Pakistan which ended their first innings in 2014. McCullum was picked for 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup
2015 ICC Cricket World Cup
as an opening batsman due to inconsistencies from Martin Guptill
Martin Guptill
and Tom Latham and the emergence of Grant Elliott
Grant Elliott
as a solid option at number five batsman. His role as a pinch hitter saw the team reach their first ever World Cup final. After the World Cup, he returned to his preferred spot at number five for tests. He still occasionally keeps wickets for domestic T20s until 2015. International recognition[edit] In the 2015 Queen's Birthday Honours McCullum was appointed an Officer of the New Zealand
New Zealand
Order of Merit for services to cricket.[39] He won the New Zealand
New Zealand
Sportsman Of The Year award in 2014, and then the Sport New Zealand
New Zealand
Leadership Award in 2016.[40] Beyond cricket[edit] McCullum has since been involved in setting up CricHQ with the company's CEO Simon Baker and former New Zealand
New Zealand
cricketer Stephen Fleming. The cricket competition management software and live scoring platform manages the administration of cricket test countries New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa and Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe
with 49 of 105 national governing bodies also use its services from club level upwards. 20 other high-profile cricketing names have invested in the company. In June 2015 it raised US$10m from Singapore private equity firm Tembusu Partners to expand globally.[41] International centuries[edit] Test centuries[edit]
