Brendon McCullum’s sensational 54-ball hundred for New Zealand saw him match Nasser Hussain! Not in terms of record-breaking speed, but McCullums ton on the first day of the second Test against Australia sees him join Hussain as a century scorer in his final Test.Heres a look at a few other notable final-Test tons, including that one of Nassers…Nasser HussainSky Sports very own Hussain signed off with a match-winning unbeaten 103 against New Zealand at Lords in 2004. And just as well, too, as Hussain had run out home favourite Andrew Strauss on 83, with the left-hander chasing a second hundred on his debut Test. Nasser Hussain celebrates after hitting the winning runs against New Zealand McCullum was playing in the game, in only his fourth Test - bizarrely batting at nine in the order in the first innings but hitting an important 96 when pushed up to three in the second innings. His efforts set England a stiff target of 282 to chase on the final day, but Strauss runs and Hussains heroic hundred saw England ultimately win comfortably by seven wickets - Hussain fittingly bowing out with his good friend Graham Thorpe, who hit fifty, there with him when he hit the winning runs.Jacques KallisHe is arguably the greatest all-rounder ever, greatest player of all-time even, so its no real surprise to see Kallis name on this list. In his 166th Test against India in Durban in 2013, Kallis cracked a crucial first-innings 113, occupying the crease for 393 minutes and 316 balls. Jacques Kallis is held aloft by team-mates on a lap of honour in his final Test Kallis had tears in his eyes as he received a standing ovation from the Kingsmead crowd when he reached his hundred, his 45th in Tests - a figure bettered only by the 51 scored by Sachin Tendulkar. The runs moved him up to third on the list of top Test run scorers - trailing Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting - and saw South Africa to a score of 500 in reply to Indias 334, helping set up a 10-wicket win to secure the series.Jason GillespieYes, Jason Gillespie. Not only did Gillespie score a ton in his final Test, it was a double. Dropped in the immediate aftermath of a bitterly disappointing 2005 Ashes series, Gillespie returned to the side for the 2006 tour of Bangladesh. He was named man of the series after taking eight wickets in the two Tests but more significantly scored 201 when batting at three as night-watchman for Australia. Jason Gillespie celebrates his double century against Bangladesh He put on 320 for the fourth wicket with Mike Hussey (182), scoring his maiden Test ton, then turned it into a double, but Gillespie was never selected to play for Australia again. He is one of only five players to score a double century in their final Test, with Englands Andy Sandham notching the highest score, 325 against the West Indies in 1930.Andy GanteaumeGanteaumes ton came not only in his final Test, but also his first. His 112 in his only Test innings for the West Indies against England in 1948 technically sees him better Bradman, his average eclipsing Dons 99.94, albeit from a smaller sample size. Andy Ganteaume has a better average than Australias Don Bradman, pictured Despite the dream debut, Ganteaume wouldnt play for the West Indies again, with suggestions that his slowed scoring when nearing his hundred possibly cost the side the chance of victory in the drawn Test. Sadly Ganteaume passed away as recently as Wednesday February 17, at the age of 95.Jack RussellNo, not the Jack Russell of battered-sunhat wearing, tea-drinking, painting, and Gloucestershire fame. This Jack Russell was one of the leading batsmen in county cricket during the period after World War I. Russell also played 10 times for England, scoring two hundreds in his final Test against South Africa in Durban in 1923. He followed up a first-innings 140 with 111 in the second, made all the more remarkable, as Wisden noted at the time, due to him battling illness during the game. He was the first English batsman to score centuries in each innings of a Test, and is still the only batsman to ever score back-to-back hundreds in his final game.

Cheap NHL Jerseys China . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. 1 Number of double-centuries by India captains away from home when Virat Kohli reached 200 on the second day in Antigua.

Their figures are the worst among all teams.
