Brendon McCullum gave critics of his batting promotion something to chew over but was still left feeling hollow after his fighting knock only delayed England's victory charge in the third cricket test.

It left New Zealand entering the fourth day still 64 runs behind the hosts with five wickets in hand after following on when they folded for 123, a hefty deficit of 241.

To be honest it wasn't McCullum's fault, I was there Saturday when he made his 71 and he played brilliantly. :D
