Most runs scored in T20 match in New Zealand

Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum has started a new voyage and this time he is in the Big Bash League 2016. McCullum made 42 runs today for the Brisbane Heat. This is the opening game for the franchise and McCullum in this season. McCullum scored his runs with a strike rate of exact 200%. It was a typical McCullum knock. He came in and started bashing the ball the moment he got the strike. McCullum hit 3 sixes and 4 fours in his innings. This is a really good start for the former kiwi captain and wicket keeper batsman.

McCullum first hit was through the off side. He charged down the ground and hit the ball through mid-off. Now this shot did not come off the middle of the bat and yet it went in the gap and there was no fielder to cut this one out.Next hit was a six over point. Another big hit from McCullum. This time he again gave the bowler a charge. This was a short ball and McCullum went after it. There was no other place where he could have hit this one. He went on the off side. This time the hit came right from the middle of his big bat.

McCullum intentions were pretty clear that he will go after the Adelaide Strikers bowlers. Neser came out to bowl next against McCullum and he was smacked for two fours and two sixes in one over by the Brisbane Heat batter.The first shot was on the leg side. This ball was hit full and McCullum picked this one up on the leg side.  There was no chance that McCullum could have left his all alone. It was right there for him to be hit on the leg side and he welcomed it.

The first six of the over went over long off. Again it was spectacular timing on the off side. The ball was pulled in at a hittable length and McCullum was already there to loft the ball over long off for a six. This was incredible hitting from the kiwi batter. McCullum has certainly shown his form with the bat. Now the Lahore Qalandars fans will be over the moon looking at his batting performance. He is their new captain for the second edition of the PSL and there are just 50 days remaining in the event. McCullum will be the destructive force which the Lahore Qalandars needed and now that he is in the side, definitely things will work in the favor of this Lahore side.
