Brendon McCullum's Great Knock

It has been a while since we have heard of a knock with such character. Down and out and facing certain defeat the combative Black Caps led by their resilient and courageous skipper took the fight right back to the Indian camp. From that 90 for 5 in the second innings to each a score of 500 plus and to inspire Watling to show similar resolve is a great task.

What the knock will do is to give the Black Caps a far bigger boundary in terms of what they can do and achieve. For the many new caps in the team it is a lesson in playing for pride, for the country. Many will get inspired by this knock and carry it with them with the hopes of emulating its character.

To me cricket is all about this. Of character, of rising from the dust, of playing for pride, of competing till the last, of turning tables. Wonderful stuff Brendon. Well done.
