The captain of the New Zealand Cricket Team Brendon McCullum has said that the last 15-20 Test matches were very special for him as he is all set to play in the final International Series of his career against Australia at his own home and after a long time they are favourites against them.
Australia had beaten New Zealand in last year's World Cup final in McCullum's captaincy and that was followed by Australia's 2-0 win Test series against Kiwis. But they have won the ODI series and will be looking to win the Test Series now for the first time since 1989 when only a single test was held.
McCullum is also looking to become first player to play 100 Test matches in a row after his debut as he has already broke Ab De Villiers' record of playing 98 consecutive matches since his debut. He said that he is very proud of the achievement as it took 12 years to do so.
The skipper said that he had overcome injuries and had to be consistent to keep the record going and he also stated that they do not play many test matches so it was more difficult. He gave example of Andrew Strauss who started after him and finished his career long ago after playing 100 tests.
McCullum wants that to change and is hopeful that they will play more test matches in future. He also revealed that one of the best moments for him was when he scored a triple century against India to save the test match as he had led the team from the front.
