‘Sometimes, he would see a Test as ODI’: Kane Williamson on Brendon McCullum

Brendon McCullum is broadly viewed as one of the most dangerous batsmen throughout the entire existence of the game. New Zealand commander Kane Williamson, in a discussion with Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal, uncovered that the previous Kiwi captain, on certain events, used to score in Tests as though he was playing in ODIs.

McCullum was the skipper of New Zealand until his retirement from worldwide cricket in 2016.

"Brendon drove brilliantly well for such an extensive stretch of time and it was an extraordinary open door for me to gain from him. The difficulties when Brendon left was two-crease, you are presently playing without him as a player and as a pioneer. One of the difficulties was that we needed to keep on developing as a gathering," said Williamson in an Instagram live video talk with Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal.

"There is change consistently and to grasp it you should be bona fide in authority. On account of our group there are different pioneers in our group who can help more youthful players when they come through."

When Iqbal brought up that he heard that McCullum would consider a to be over game as a 40-more than one, Williamson basically answered, "as far as he could tell, perhaps."

He proceeded to uncover that McCullum would once in a while observe a Test coordinate as an ODI.

"Now and then he saw it (ODI) as a T20 and Test cricket as an ODI game and afterward he would go out and score unimaginably rapidly," he said.

"Brendon played his common game and it carried a great deal of accomplishment to us, Brendon was so talented in his way to deal with the game, it truly praised the group in a major manner."

Brendon McCullum broke the record of quickest century in Test coordinates in his last appearance in the longest configuration for New Zealand.
