Trinbago Knight Riders
27th September 1981
One of the most dynamic players to have ever grazed the cricket field, Brendon McCullum made his CPL debut in 2016 playing for the Trinbago Knight Riders. Fondly known as Baz, McCullum is famous for his destructive batting at the top of the order, and the ease with which he can dismantle any bowling lineup in world cricket. Going into this CPL with over 280 games, 7884 runs, seven 100s under his belt - the sheer numbers in his T20 career makes him such an ominous figure. He is the second highest run scorer in the format. McCullum will always be remembered for his knock of 158* in the inaugural game of the first IPL edition in 2008, playing then for the Kolkata Knight Riders.
