Kiwis too strong for Bangladesh
Brendon McCullum made history again as New Zealand hammered Bangladesh by 59 runs at the World Twenty20 in Pallekele.
The Kiwi smashed 123 runs off 58 balls which included seven sixes and 11 fours to eclipse the previous international joint-record - held by Richard Levi and Chris Gayle - by six runs. McCullum was involved in stands of 94 and 78 with James Franklin and Ross Taylor respectively to guide New Zealand to 191-3. Bangladesh had no reply and were skittled out for 132-8 as Kyle Mills took 3-33, with Nasir Hossain's stubborn half-century proving to be the only resistance although it was too little too late. McCullum also holds the record for the highest-ever score in the 20-over form of the game, having previously slogged 158 runs for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL back in 2008.
