Daryll Cullinan turns 48


One of the classiest batsmen to have ever played for his country, Daryll Cullinan, turns 48 on Wednesday.

He broke Graeme Pollock’s record as the youngest South African to score a first-class century, set the national mark for the highest first-class score (337 not out against Northern Transvaal in 1993) and at Eden Park in 1999 he edged past Pollock’s highest Test score of 274 by one run to claim the then South African record. Cullinan made 14 Test hundreds in all.

Watch however, one of his more bizarre dismissals, handled the ball, against the West Indies in an ODI match.
