Brendon McCullum has scored double centuries in consecutive Test matches against India. He scored 224 runs in the first Test in Auckland and has followed that with another double ton in the second Test in Wellington on February 17, 2014.

 

McCullum becomes only the sixth player in history and the first from New Zealand to score two double centuries in back-to-back Test matches. This is also McCullum’s third double ton and all three have come against India. Ricky Ponting was the first player to score three double centuries against India.

 

Wally Hammond, Don Bradman, Vinod Kambli, Graeme Smith and Thilan Samaraweera are the only players to have scored double tons in consecutive Test matches before McCullum. Hammond achieved the feat twice while Bradman achieved it three times.

 

McCullum is batting on 204 after 144 overs in New Zealand’s second innings of the second Test against India. New Zealand are at 400 for five. BJ Watling is batting on 105.
