There was a fine balance between your fearless approach and focus on technique. The brand of cricket you encouraged your team to play was always entertaining”, Tendulkar wrote in the tweet.

Sachin Wishes McCullum!

 

Dale Steyn has been a great bowler in the history of South Africa’s cricket. The 36-year-old held the number 1 Test bowler spot for record 263  weeks between  2010 to 2014. With 439 wickets in 171 Test innings, Steyn is South Africa’s leading wicket-taker in Tests. At the peak of his career, Steyn was a nightmare for top batsmen in cricket. Although his Test career has ended, his stint in limited cricket will continue.

Talking about Brendon McCullum, the Kiwi opener took New Zealand to finals of World Cup 2015. Batting as an opener, he has been a dangerous batsman. He was the first New Zealander to score a triple hundred in a Test with his knock of 302 runs against India on February 1, .2014. His spectacular innings of 158* runs in debut Indian Premier League clash in IPL 2008 is popular among all Indian fans. Mccullum has been very active in commentary and his role as a commentator is expected to continue in future.
