McCullum 'almost embarrassed' at record-breaking slog

New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum plays a shot during day one of their second Test match against Australia, at the Hagley Park in Christchurch, on February 20, 2016Brendon McCullum belted the fastest century the world has seen on Saturday as he thrashed the Australian bowling in a landmark innings to celebrate his final Test. At the end of his explosive 145-run innings, the popular New Zealand captain felt a mixture of pride in what he had achieved and embarrassment at breaking a record set by his childhood hero Viv Richards. With a stream of sixes and fours, McCullum brought up his 100 in just 54 deliveries, two fewer than the previous Test record of 56 achieved by West Indies’ great Richards 30 years ago and Pakistan’s Misbah-ul-Haq in 2014.
