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. Cheap College Jerseys Basketball .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.

Fellow centre Pavel Datsyuk remains out because of a concussion. Zetterberg has 11 goals and 19 assists for a team-high 30 points, and Datsyuk has a team-high 12 goals and 11 assists. . That gave fans outside Joe Louis Arena another chance to ask for autographs from the 19-year-old whose stardom in the NHL has arrived earlier than most expected. Fremantle coach Ross Lyon wishes he could have sent Matthew Pavlich out on a better note, describing the retiring veteran as an extension of himself.Pavlich will notch his 350-game milestone in Sundays AFL clash with Sydney at Domain Stadium.The 34-year-old decided to play on this year in the hope of finally landing an elusive flag.Instead, 2016 will be remembered as one of Fremantles worst ever seasons, with the Dockers set to finish in 16th spot after snaring just three wins from the opening 17 rounds.Its a huge fall from grace for Fremantle, which had played finals in Lyons first four years at the club - including a grand final appearance in 2013.Lyon said Pavlich was pivotal in ensuring his arrival at Fremantle translated into a period of success.He was a critical piece for me when I walked through the door cold, said Lyon, who was under immediate pressure to produce results following the shock sacking of popular coach Mark Harvey in 2011.I didnt really know anything about the Dockers to be truthful. Or much about Matthew.I knew he was a very good player. But as a leader he was certainly an extension of me, (and) helped set standards and drive the group.I tend to start at the top and whack the best ones, and everyone else falls into line.He understood that, he responded to that and Im really grateful for his contribution in my coaching period at the Dockers.Lyon praised Pavlichs ability to carry both internal and external presssure. Cheap College Jerseys Authentic. Pavlich, who captained Fremantle for nine years before handing over the mantle to David Mundy at the end of last season, is a six-time All-Australian and six-time winner of Fremantles best-and-fairest award.He won the minor premiership with Fremantle last season, and was a critical part of the sides surge to the 2013 grand final.But he will leave the game without a flag to his name - a situation Lyon wishes he could have changed.We wish this year could have been a bit different. But at the end of the day its still a pleasure to work with Matthew, Lyon said.He leaves a really big footprint at this club that will take a while to blow away.He set great standards and hes been through some difficult periods and he leaves behind a legacy of hard work, determination and character..No WA-based has ever notched 300 games, let alone the 350 mark Pavlich is about to post.Retired West Coast ruckman Dean Cox (290 games) is the next best WA-based player, and Lyon said Pavlichs feat was incredible given the extensive travel burden he has been forced to deal with.He is quite miraculous in a lot of ways, Lyon said.MATTHEW PAVLICH IN A NUTSHELL:* Age: 34* Games: 249* Goals: 693* All Australians: 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008* Best and fairests: 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011* Captain: 2007-15 Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Camo China NFL Jerseys Black China NFL JerseysCheap NFL Gear Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
