New Delhi: New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum on Saturday played one of the best knocks in recent history on Day 1 of the 2nd Test against Australia.
The right-hander scored a century off just 54 balls, providing great entertainment to the home fans.
Baz's knock not only stunned the Aussies, but also the entire cricketing fraternity. His 'no fear' approach matched with brutal hitting left fans awestruck.
Here is what players, past and present, had to say about the retiring legend's special innings.
