Brendon McCullum hits fastest World Cup fifty

Fast-50Brendon McCullum, the Captain of New Zealand Cricket Team, hits the fastest-ever World Cup fifty when he reached the landmark off just 18 balls against England at Wellington.

McCullum beat his own World Cup record when he carved fast bowler Steven Finn for four, having made a fifty off 20 balls against Canada in 2007.

His innings was also the equal third-fastest fifty in all one-day internationals, behind South Africa’s AB de Villiers (16 balls) and Sri Lanka’s Sanath Jayasuriya (of 17 balls).

The opener’s whirlwind half-century featured seven fours and four sixes as New Zealand rapidly closed in on victory after skittling England out for just 123.
