Brendan McCullum star of the first IPL match for Kolkata

As of the 17th over of the first innings of the inaugural IPL match of Kolkata Knight Riders vs Bangalore Royal Challengers, the undisputed star of the show is Brendan McCullum – whom most of us in India have never heard much about.

Brendan McCullum, who opened with a distinctly scratchy Sourav Ganguly, is now at 113 runs off 59 balls. In this blistering innings, he distincly overshadowed all his batting partners, whether its a Ganguly or a Ricky Ponting. McCullum hit 8 fours and 8 sixes – and if he continues, may hit a few more!
