The New Zealand batsman Brendon McCullum scored the fastest Test century in just 54 balls during his final match for BLACKCAPS before retiring.
The 34-year-old skipper smashes four sixes and 16 fours to complete his 12th century in a stunning display against Australia on the first day of the second Test in Christchurch.
He beat the mark of 56 balls set by West Indies legend Sir Viv Richards and equalled by Pakistan’s Misbah-ul-Haq in 2014.
McCullum’s fastest ton brings plenty of reactions on Twitter…

Brendon McCullum smashes Aussie bowlers for 145 off 79 deliveries. And he is retiring after this Test. Insane. Somebody stop him!
