Brendon McCullum turns 40 today, and to celebrate it is well worth watching back his most incredible of goodbyes to international cricket. During the second Test against Australia in February of 2016, McCullum smashed 145 off 79 balls, his hundred coming in the quickest time ever in the longest format, just 54 deliveries, to beat the lasting record of Sir Viv Richards. In what was his last game before retirement, the New Zealand legend hit 21 fours and 6 sixes in a knock that will not soon be forgotten.
