Brendon McCullum became the first Kiwi to register a triple century in Test cricket when he reached 302 against India on the final day of the second Test on Tuesday. It was a marathon innings in every sense of the word, lasting over 12 hours over the course of two days. Coming in when New Zealand were 87 for 4, trailing India by 159 runs in their second innings and staring at a big defeat, McCullum stitched a record 352-run stand for the sixth wicket with BJ Watling that put the hosts back on top. The match eventually ended in a draw and NZ clinched the series 1-0.
