(Video) Shimmy down and swing, a throwback to McCullum’s tried-and-tested formula

Brendon McCullum had the power game to dismantle oppositions at will. On his birthday, it’s prudent to have a look at the dasher’s stunning flick after jettying down the track with typical alacrity. It was a tried-and-tested facet of McCullum’s modus operandi to charge at bowlers and put them off their lengths. The swashbuckling Kiwi opener puts his dancing shoes on to reach the pitch off the ball and brings the bottom hand into play to fetch six audacious runs.
