Brendon McCullum demonstrated his batting and captaincy talents during a live masterclass in The Zone at Lord's.

The former Black Caps skipper joined Ian Ward and Shane Warne ahead of the third day of the first Test between England and South Africa, where he talked about his 'no fear' attitude to cricket.

Wardy quizzed McCullum on his attacking style which revolutionised the short formats, with the New Zealander highlighting some of the drills he goes through to boost his shot selection.

McCullum, who will be back in a Middlesex shirt for this year's Natwest T20 blast, spoke about his captaincy style and how the shorter formats have revolutionised during his impressive career.

Away from the white-ball game, McCullum also analysed some of his biggest triumphs in the Test arena - including the history-making triple-century against India and landmark ton against Australia.

Despite his one-day and T20 talents, McCullum revealed to Warne and Wardy which format was the pinnacle for him.

"White-ball cricket became key for me when I realised I didn't have much of a defensive game!" McCullum said. "It's the greatest challenge in the game in terms of the application and mindset."
