    Brendon McCullum
    DOB 27 September 1981
    IPL Debut 2008

    Brash, brutal and brilliant to watch, Brendon McCullum can bruise bowling attacks like few other men in international cricket. A wicketkeeper-batsman, he was responsible for getting the IPL off to an electrifying start, lighting up the tournament's first match with a 158 and showing what the format had to offer. His knock against Australia in a Twenty20 international, where he brazenly scooped 155 kph offerings from Shaun Tait and Dirk Nannes over the wicketkeeper's head at Christchurch in 2009-10, is regarded as one of the best T20 innings ever. Having represented Kolkata Knight Riders and Kochi Tuskers Kerala in the previous seasons, the Kiwi captain was bought by CSK in the 2014 IPL Player Auction.
