The 30-year-old right-hander hit 123 off just 58 balls—the highest individual score in all Twenty20 internationals—to guide New Zealand to 191-3 before restricting Bangladesh to 132-8 in 20 overs at Pallekele on Friday.
“Obviously I am very pleased to be able to make that contribution,” said McCullum, declared man-of-the-match after New Zealand’s 59-run win in the opening group D match.
“There have been a couple of innings which I remember for various reasons,” said McCullum, whose other Twenty20 century came against Australia at Christchurch in 2010. “This one is really up there among my best.”—AFP
