New Delhi: Today is a special day for Kolkata Knight Riders head coach and former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum. Brendon McCullum had set the fastest century record in test cricket that day. McCullum did it against Australia in just 54 balls.
The job was done in the last career test

At that point, New Zealand was struggling to lose three wickets for 32 races. Then Brendon McCullum came along and created a storm on the ground. New Zealand scored 370 thanks to McCullum’s innings. However, Australia won this match due to the centuries of Joe Burns and Usman Khawaja.

Prior to Brendon McCullum, the century’s fastest test cricket record was named after former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq and West Indies legend Sir Vivian Richards. Misbah and Richards have scored centuries in 56-ball cricket testing. However McCullum broke this record two balls before that.
