Brendon McCullum is an important player of the New Zealand Cricket team. He is a wonderful wicketkeeper-batsman and has won his place in the side after an outstanding phase in international youth cricket where he proved a batsman well capable of completely dominating opposition attacks. He made his mark at last in 2004 in the Test series against England, where he scored 195 runs in the series including 96 at Lord's in May. McCullum was at the starting introduced as a one-day player, but later he forced his way past Robbie Hart as the Test wicketkeeper in the series against South Africa in 2003-04. He's very much part of New Zealand's one-day plans, and ought to figure prominently in the 2007 World Cup.
