New Zealand batsman Brendon McCullum recorded the quickest ever World Cup fifty when he arrived at the milestone off only 18 balls against England at Wellington on Friday. The opener’s hurricane half-century emphasized seven fours and four sixes as New Zealand quickly surrounded victory in the wake of skittering England out for only 123.

McCullum beat his own World Cup record when he cut quick bowler Steven Finn for four, having made a fifty off 20 balls against Canada in 2007. His innings was likewise the equivalent third-quickest fifty in each of the one-day internationals, behind South Africa’s AB de Villiers (16 balls) and Sri Lanka’s Sanath Jayasuriya (17 balls).
